Pseaume 114 - Clément Marot

Quand Israel hors d’Egypte sortit:
Et la maison de Iacob se partit
D'entre le peuple estrange:
Iuda fut fact la grand gloire de Dieu
Et Dieu se fit Prince du peuple Hebreu
Prince de grand' louange.

Marnix van sint Aldegonde

Doe Israel los uyt Egypten quam,
End van den volck vertoge Jacobs stam,
Van Lien, die hun vremt waren.
Thuys Juda wert des Heeren roem end eer,
D'Almachtig self werd' Coninck ende Heer
Der Israelsche scharen.

The lyrics are a poetic translation of psalm 114
