From Reliquae sacrorum concentuum, 1615.
Lyrics: Psalm 19, v.1-5

Cæli enarrant gloriam Dei: et opera manuum ejus annuntiat firmamentum.
Dies diei eructat verbum: et nox nocti indicat scientiam.
Non sunt loquelæ, neque sermones: quorum non audiantur voces eorum.
In omnem terram exivit sonus eorum: et in fines orbis terræ verba eorum.
In sole posuit tabernaculum suum: et ipse tamquam sponsus procedens de thalamo suo.

The heavens declare the glory of God: and the firmament sheweth his handywork.
One day telleth another: and one night certifieth another.
There is neither speech nor language: but their voices are heard among them.
Their sound is gone out into all lands: and their words into the ends of the world.
In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun: which cometh forth as a bridegroom out of his chamber.
