From Cantiones Sacræ II, 1591.
Lyrics: Psalm 44, v.23, 24

Exsurge, quare obdormis Domine et ne repellas me in finem.
Quare faciem tuam avertis, oblivisceris inopiae nostrae et tribulationis nostrae?

Up, Lord, why sleepest thou: awake, and be not absent from us for ever.
Wherefore hidest thou thy face: and forgettest our misery and trouble?
