propterea benedixit te Deus in aeternum.

Ausgegossen ist Gnade auf deinen Lippen:
deswegen hat dich Gott auf ewig gesegnet.

45:2  Grace flows from your lips,
because God has blessed you for ever.

The page Diffusa est gratia gives the text of the Offertory, different from the Communion in the second line but exactly the same as the underlay text of the score just above, on the present page.
