Dilexisti justitiam, et odisti iniquitatem : propterea unxit te Deus, Deus tuus, oleo laetitiae prae consortibus tuis.
Eructavit cor meum verbum bonum : dico ego opera mea

Thou hast loved justice and hated iniquity:
Therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee
with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

My heart hath uttered a good word:
I speak my works to the King.
