Ego sum, qui sum, et consilium meum non est cum impiis:
sed in lege Domini voluntas mea est: Alleluia.
Postulavi patrem meum dedit mihi gentes in haereditatem: Alleluia.
Ego dormivi et somnum cepi, et resurrexi:
quoniam Dominus suscepit me: Alleluia.

I am who I am, and my counsel is not with the wicked,
but my will is in the law of the Lord, alleluia.
I asked my Father, and he gave me the nations as an inheritance.
I slept and took rest, and rose,
for the Lord hath protected me, alleluia.
