Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text Passer invenit sibi domum,
et turtur nidum, ubi reponat pullos suos:
altaria tua Domine virtutum, Rex meus, et Deus meus:
beati qui habitant in domo tua,
in saeculum saeculi laudabunt te.

English.png English translation The sparrow has found herself a home,
and the turtle dove a nest where she may keep her young:
at thine altars, Lord of hosts, my King and my God;
blessed are they that dwell in thy house,
they shall praise thee for ever and ever.
