Lyrics: 1 Timothy 4: 8

Corporalis exercitatio paululum habet utilitatis
at pietas ad omnia utilis est,
ut quæ promissiones habeat vitæ praesentis et futuræ.

Bodily exercise profiteth little:
but godliness is profitable unto all things,
which hath the promise of the life present, and of that that is to come.
(trans. Geneva Bible)
