Lyrics: Psalm 108, v. 2-7

Paratum cor meum, Deus, paratum cor meum; cantabo, et psalmum dicam.
Exsurge, gloria mea; exsurge, psalterium et cithara; exsurgam diluculo.
Confitebor tibi in populis, Domine, et psallam tibi in nationibus: quoniam magnificata est ad cælos misericordia tua, et usque ad nubes veritas tua.
Exaltare super cælos, Deus, et super omnem terram gloria tua: ut liberentur dilecti tui. Salvum fac dextera tua, et exaudi me.

O God, my heart is ready, my heart is ready: I will sing and give praise.
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: and thy truth reacheth unto the clouds.
Set up thyself, O God, above the heavens: and thy glory above all the earth.
That thy beloved may be delivered: let thy right hand save them, and hear thou me.
