Original text and translations
English and Latin text
Then sit thee down, and say thy Nunc Dimittis,
with De profundis, Credo, and Te Deum,
Chant Miserere for what now so fit is,
as that, or this, Paratum est cor meum,
O that thy Saint would take in worth thy heart,
thou canst not please her with a better part.
