Inter brachia salvatoris mei et vivere volo, et mori cupio.
Ibi securus decantabo, exaltabo te, Domine,
quoniam suscepisti me,
nec delectasti inimicos meos super me.

English.png English translation

In the arms of my Saviour, I desire both to live, and to die.
In that safe place I will sing, and I will exalt thee, O Lord,
For you have sustained me,
and have not allowed my foes to rejoice over me.

Translation by James Gibb
