Latin text

Quoniam Domins excelsus, terribilis: Rex magnus super omnem terram.
Subjecit populos nobis: & gentes sub pedibus nostris.
Quoniam Domins excelsus, terribilis: Rex magnus super omnem terram.
Elegit nobis hereditatem suam: speciem Jacob, quam dilexit.
Quoniam Domins excelsus, terribilis: Rex magnus super omnem terram.
