Benedictus Dominus Deus meus,
qui docet manus meas ad praelium,
et digitos meos ad bellum. (Ps. 144:1)
Dextera tua Domine percussit inimicum.
Et in multitudine gloriae tuae
deposuisti adversarios meos. (Exodus 15:6-7)

Omnes gentes plaudite manibus
jubilate Deo in voce exultationis
terribilis Rex magnus super omnem terram.
subjecit populos nobis nobis
et gentes sub pedibus nostris. (Ps. 47:2-4)
