Nunc cognovi, Domine,
quia verus est sermo, quem audivi in terra mea
super sermonibus tuis, et non credebam narrantibus mihi,
donec ipse veni, et vidi oculis meis, et vidi oculis meis
et probavi quod media pars mihi nuntiata non fuerit:
et tu, Domine, fac me sicut unum ex mercenariis tuis.

Beati servi tui, qui hic stant coram te semper,
et experiuntur largitatem tuam.
Sit Dominus Deus tuus benedictus,
qui posuit te super thronum patris tui,
ut faceres iudicium et iustitiam;
et tu, Domine,
fac me sicut unum ex mercenariis tuis.
