Quid retríbuam Dómino,
pro ómnibus, quæ retríbuit mihi?
Tibi sacrificábo HOSTIAM LAUDIS,
et nomen Dómini invocábo.

What shall I render to the Lord,
for all the things that he hath rendered to me?
I will sacrifice to thee the sacrifice of praise,
and I will call upon the name of the Lord.

— Psalm 115(116)
