Sicut locutus est ad patres nostros, Abraham et semini ejus in saecula. | As he promised to our forefathers, Abraham and his seed for ever.

sicut erat in principio, et nunc, et semper: et in Saecula saeculorum. Amen. | As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be : world without end. Amen.
