Commovisti Domine terram, et conturbasti eam.
Sana contritiones ejus, quia commota est.
Ut fugiant a facie arcus, ut liberentur dilecti tui.

Thou, Lord, hast moved the earth, and hast troubled it.
Heal thou the breaches thereof, for it has been moved.
May they (that fear Thee) flee from before the bow, that thy beloved may be delivered.
(Psalm 60:4,6)
