Today's Benedictus Antiphon

Here is today's Benedictus antiphon from Lauds this morning. (Monday in the Octave of Pentecost) I translated while I read it but it didn't connect for some reason. Then later on I used my 1964 Benziger Roman Breviary in English and it caught my eye. I had an "aha" moment.

Before you go looking this up, try to figure it out. Its not hard and the text is extremely well known. It is probably the most famous verse in the Bible if I had to guess.

Sic Deus dilexit mundum, ut Filium suum unigenitum daret: ut omnis, qui credit in ipsum, non pereat, sed habeat vitam aeternam, alleluia.

Get it?
