Benedicite gentes Dominum Deum nostrum et obaudite vocem laudis ejus.
qui posuit animam meam ad vitam et non dedit commoveri pedes meos.
Benedictus Dominus qui non amovit deprecationem meam et misericordiam suam a me.
(Psalm 65 (Vulgate), 8-9, 20)

O nations, bless the Lord our God,
let the voice of His praises resound;
He has restored my soul to life
and He has not suffered my feet to stumble.
Blessed be the Lord who has neither rejected my prayer
nor turned His mercy away from me.
(Psalm 66, 7-8, 18)
