Psalm 133

133 How wonderful it is, how pleasant,
    for God's people to live together in harmony!
2 It is like the precious anointing oil
    running down from Aaron's head and beard,
    down to the collar of his robes.
3 It is like the dew on Mount Hermon,
    falling on the hills of Zion.
That is where the Lord has promised his blessing—
    life that never ends.

Ecce quam bonum et quam iucundum
habitare fratres in unum:
2 sicut unguentum optimum in capite,
quod descendit in barbam, barbam Aaron,
quod descendit in oram vestimenti eius;
3 sicut ros Hermon, qui descendit in montes Sion,
quoniam illic mandavi  Dominus benedictionem, 
vitam usque in saeculum.

Note for those interested in Gregorian Chant, the Graduale Romanum where this chant is found [page 351 of the book, page 179 of rhe pdf] is also available online in a pdf.
