Psalm 51:15 (Vulgate): Concupiscendo concupiscit anima mea laudare te, o Domine, o Deus omnipotens: aperi labia mea, ut annuntiet os meum laudem tuam.
Psalm 144:1 (Vulgate): Exaltabo te, Deus meus, in toto corde meo: et benedicam nomini tuo in sæculum et in æternum.

With great longing, my soul longs to praise you, o Lord, o omnipotent God: open my lips, so that my mouth may proclaim your praise.
I will exalt you, my God, with all my heart: and I will bless your name for all ages and for eternity.
