Illuxerunt fulgura ejus orbi terrae; vidit, et commota est terra.

Montes sicut cera fluxerunt a facie Domini; a facie Domini omnis terra.

 Sion heard, and was glad. And the daughters of Juda rejoiced, because of thy judgments, O Lord.

Lux orta est justo, et rectis corde laetitia.
 Rejoice, ye just, in the Lord: and give praise to the remembrance of his holiness.
Laetamini, justi, in Domino, et confitemini memoriae sanctificationis ejus.
