Deus meus, in simplicitate cordis mei
laetus obtuli universa:
et populum tuum qui repertus est
vidi cum ingenti gaudio: Deus Israel,
custodi hanc voluntatem, Domine Deus.

My God, with a simple heart
have I joyfully offered everything;
and thy people who are gathered here
I have beheld with immense joy: God of Israel,
preserve this good intention, O Lord God.
