From Harmonia Sacra, Frankfurt, 1617, the dedicatee of which was Sigismund III of Poland. In this motet Hakenberger combines two texts of prayer for the king's well-being: a passage from Psalm 20 (Vulgate) set for double choir, together with an antiphon, as a cantus firmus in the tenor, binding the choirs together.
Lyrics: Psalm 20: 2-5

Domine, in virtute tua lætabitur rex: et super salutare tuum exultabit vehementer.
Desiderium cordis eius tribuisti ei: et voluntate labiorum eius non fraudasti eum.
Quoniam prævenisti eum in benedictionibus dulcedinis: posuisti in capite eius coronam de lapide pretioso.
Vitam petiit a te, et tribuisti ei longitudinem dierum: in sæculum, et in sæculum sæculi.

Domine, salvum fac regem et exaudi nos in die qua invocaverimus te.

The King shall rejoice in thy strength, O Lord: exceeding glad shall he be of thy salvation.
Thou hast given him his heart's desire: and hast not denied him the request of his lips.
For thou shalt prevent him with the blessings of goodness: and shalt set a crown of pure gold upon his head.
He asked life of thee, and thou gavest him a long life: even for ever and ever.

Preserve the king, O Lord, and hear us when we call upon thee.
