Semel juravi in sancto meo:
semen ejus in aeternum manebit:
et sedes ejus sicut sol in conspectu meo,
et sicut luna perfecta in aeternum,
et testis in caelo fidelis.
Once have I sworn by my holiness:
his seed shall endure for ever,
and his throne as the sun before me,
and as the moon perfect for ever:
and a faithful witness in heaven.
