26 A song of the faithful, wherein is declared, in what consisteth the salvation of the Church, and wherein they ought to trust.

In that day shall [a]this song be sung in the land of Judah, We have a strong city: [b]salvation shall God set for walls and bulwarks.

[c]Open ye the gates that the righteous nation, which keepeth the truth, may enter in.
