1 [In finem, pro torcularibus. Psalmus David.] 
  Domine, Dominus noster, quam admirabile est nomen tuum in universa terra!
  quoniam elevata est magnificentia tua super cælos.
2 Ex ore infantium et lactentium perfecisti
  laudem propter inimicos tuos,
  ut destruas inimicum et ultorem.
3 Quoniam videbo cælos tuos, opera digitorum tuorum,
  lunam et stellas quæ tu fundasti.
4 Quid est homo, quod memor es ejus?
  aut filius hominis, quoniam visitas eum?
5 Minuisti eum paulominus ab angelis;
  gloria et honore coronasti eum;
6 et constituisti eum super opera manuum tuarum.
7 Omnia subjecisti sub pedibus ejus,
  oves et boves universas, insuper et pecora campi,
8 volucres cæli, et pisces maris 
  qui perambulant semitas maris.
9 Domine, Dominus noster, quam admirabile est nomen tuum in universa terra!
