Anima Nostra Sicut Passer (Psalm 124:7-8) Nicolas Gombert

Psalm 124:7-8 [Latin: Psalmi 123:7,8] – Our soul is escaped as a bird [or “sparrow”] out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped. Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.

Anima nostra sicut passer erepta est, de laqueo venantium; laqueus contritus est, et nos liberati sumus. Adiutorium nostrum in nomine Domini, qui fecit caelum et terram.

A bird caught in a mist net in Portugal. Our soul is escaped as a bird out of a fowler's snare, the psalmist says.
