Lyrics: Psalm 108, v.2-5

Paratum cor meum, Deus, paratum cor meum; cantabo, et psallam in gloria mea.
Exurge, gloria mea; exurge, psalterium et cithara; exsurgam diluculo.
Confitebor tibi in populis, Domine, et psallam tibi in nationibus:
quia magna est super caelos misericordia tua.

O God, my heart is ready, my heart is ready: I will sing and give praise with the best member that I have.
Awake, thou lute, and harp: I myself will awake right early.
I will give thanks unto thee, O Lord, among the people: I will sing praises unto thee among the nations.
For thy mercy is greater than the heavens.
