Thank you

This text is from a vocal octavo entitled: Cantemus.

I appreciate your help:)

Let us sing ...
Explanation:
Let us sing because it is good to sing ...

But "lucundum"? Isn´t this the text "Cantemus, quia cantare bonum est Cantemus, quia cantare
iucundum est Cantemus, quia cantare amantis est"?

Lucundum doesn´t fit at all, it is not a happy word.

"Let us sing because it is good to sing, let us sing because it is delightful to sing, let us sing because it is lovely to sing."
