Lyrics: Psalm 71, v.20-22

Quantas ostendisti mihi tribulationes multas et malas, et conversus vivificasti me: et de abyssis terrae iterum reduxisti me.
Multiplicasti magnificentiam tuam: et conversus consolatus es me.
Nam et ego confitebor tibi in vasis psalmi veritatem tuam Deus: psallam tibi in cithara Sanctus Israel.

O what great troubles and adversities hast thou shewed me, and yet didst thou turn and refresh me: yea, and broughtest me from the deep of the earth again.
Thou hast brought me to great honour: and comforted me on every side.
Therefore will I praise thee and thy faithfulness, O God: playing upon an instrument of musick: unto thee will I sing upon the harp, O thou Holy One of Israel.
