Saepe expugnaverunt. The church of God is invincible: her persecutors come to nothing.
 Often have they fought against me from my youth, let Israel now say.
 Often have they fought against me from my youth: but they could not prevail over me.
 The wicked have wrought upon my back: they have lengthened their iniquity.
 The Lord who is just will cut the necks of sinners:
 Let them all be confounded and turned back that hate Sion.
 Let them be as grass on the tops of houses: which withered before it be plucked up:
 Wherewith the mower filleth not his hand: nor he that gathereth sheaves his bosom.
 And they that have passed by have not said: The blessing of the Lord be upon you: we have blessed you in the name of the Lord.
