Desiderium animae eius tribuisti ei Domine,
et voluntate labiorum eius non fraudasti eum.
Quoniam praevenisti eum in benedictionibus dulcedinis:
posuisti in capite eius coronam de lapide pretioso.
et voluntate labiorum eius non fraudasti eum.

Thou hast given him the desire of his soul, O Lord,
And the longing of his lips will not withheld from him.
For Thou hast gone before him with blessings of sweetness:
Thou hast set on his head a crown of precious stones.
And the longing of his lips will not be withheld from him.

German.png German translation

Die Sehnsucht seiner Seele hast du ihm verliehen, Herr,
und um das Wollen seiner Lippen hast du ihn nicht betrogen.
Denn du bist ihm zuvorgekommen in Segnungen der Süßigkeit:
du hast auf sein Haupt eine Krone aus kostbarem Stein gelegt.
und um das Wollen seiner Lippen hast du ihn nicht betrogen.
