Eructavit cor meum verbum bonum:
dico ego opera mea regi.
Lingua mea calamus scribæ velociter scribentis.
Speciosus forma præ filiis hominum,
diffusa est gratia in labiis tuis:
propterea benedixit te Deus in æternum.

My heart is inditing of a good matter:
I speak of the things which I have made unto the King. My tongue is the pen: of a ready writer.
Thou art fairer than the children of men:
full of grace are thy lips,
because God hath blessed thee for ever.
(Book of Common Prayer)
