Lyrics: Psalm 37, v.35,36

Vidi impium superexaltatum: et elevatum sicut cedros Libani.
et transivi, et ecce non erat: et quaesivi eum, et non est inventus locus ejus.

I myself have seen the ungodly in great power: and flourishing like a green bay-tree.
I went by, and lo, he was gone: I sought him, but his place could nowhere be found.
