See Psalm 48 vv. 8-9, 7a 1b (Vulgate Psalm 47 vv. 10-11, 9a, 2b).

Suscepimus, Deus, misericordiam tuam in medio templi tui, secundum nomen tuum, Deus. Ita et laus tua in fines terrae.
Sicut audivimus, ita et vidimus in civitate Dei nostri, in monte sancto ejus.

We have received Thy mercy, O God, in the midst of Thy temple; according to Thy Name, O God, so also is Thy praise unto the ends of the earth.
As we have heard, so have we seen, in the city of our God, in his holy mountain.
