From Cantionum sacrarum (part one), Jena, 1602.
Lyrics: Proverbs, ch. 31, v. 29,30

Multae filiae congregaverunt divitias; tu supergressa es universas.
Fallax gratia, et vana est pulchritudo: mulier timens Dominum, ipsa laudabitur.

Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.
Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.
