Concluding Prayers

Dominus Nos Benedicat – "May the Lord bless us"

   ánima mea Dóminum,
et exsultávit spíritus meus*
   in Deo salvatóre meo,
quia respéxit humilitátem ancíllæ suæ.*
   Ecce enim ex hoc beátam me dicent
      omnes generatiónes,
quia fecit mihi magna, qui potens est,*
   et sanctum nomen eius,
et misericórdia eius in progénies et progénies*
   timéntibus eum.

Fecit poténtiam in bráchio suo,*
   dispérsit supérbos mente cordis sui;
depósuit poténtes de sede*
   et exaltávit húmiles;
esuriéntes implévit bonis*
   et dívites dimísit inánes.

Suscépit Israel púerum suum,*
   recordátus misericórdiæ,
sicut locútus est ad patres nostros,*
   Abraham et sémini eius in sǽcula.

Glória Patri, et Fílio,*
et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc et semper,*
et in sǽcula sæculórum. Amen.
