Elegi abjectus esse in domo Dei mei
magis quam habitare in tabernaculis peccatorum
quia misericordiam et veritatem diligit Deus
gratiam et gloriam dabit Dominus.

I have chosen to be an abject in the house of my God:
rather then to dwel in the tabernacles of sinnes.
Because God loveth mercie and truth:
our Lord wil give grace and glorie.
(Douay, 1610)
