Lyrics: Psalm 69, v.30-33

Ego sum pauper et dolens; salus tua, Deus, suscepit me.
Laudabo nomen Dei cum cantico, et magnificabo eum in laude:
et placebit Deo super vitulum novellum, cornua producentem et ungulas.
Videant pauperes, et laetentur: quaerite Deum, et vivet anima vestra.

As for me, when I am poor and in heaviness: thy help, O God, shall lift me up.
I will praise the Name of God with a song: and magnify it with thanksgiving:
this also shall please the Lord, better than a bullock that hath horns and hoofs.
The humble shall consider this, and be glad: seek ye after God, and your soul shall live.
