Tye's text, a translation of Psalm 130, is from the King's Primer of 1545. The translator remains unidentified. It is most likely to be one who held favour with the Edwardian settlement around the period of the drafting and adoption of the Book of Common Prayer of 1549.

From the depth I called on thee, O Lord: Lord hear my voice.
Let thy ears give good heed to the voice of my prayers.
If thou, Lord, will look straightly upon sins, O good Lord,
who shall abide it?
But with thee is mercy.
