Lyrics: Psalm 44, v.23-26

Exsurge, quare obdormis, Domine? exsurge, et ne repellas in finem.
Quare faciem tuam abscondis? Oblivisceris tribulationem nostram?
Adhaesit in terra venter noster.
Exsurge, Domine, adjuva nos, et libera nos.

Up, Lord, why sleepest thou? awake, and be not absent from us for ever.
Wherefore hidest thou thy face: and forgettest our trouble?
Our belly cleaveth unto the ground.
Arise, Lord, and help us: and deliver us.
