That Lutheran version would be a bit of a bugger to sing with the custonary tune. You must have a different tune.

We always used to sing the Latin version as a kid. I still think it sings better, it's a real belter to end the service. A lot of the Engish version scans badly. Including the "abhors not the virgin's womb" - which is also disrespecful.
