Murus tuus dilecta nodilecta nostra
super quem aedificaverunt impii
et sibi produxerunt iniquitatem firmus est
qui contrivit cervices eorum ex quo te laudamus
et benedicimus in saecula dicentes:
benedicta tu in mulieribus.

Ego murus sum et ubera mea sicut turris fortissima
quae facta sum pacem reperies,
ex quo beatam me clamant omnes gentes laudantes
et benedicunt in saecula dicentes:
benedicta tu in mulieribus.
