Δαυίδου μελέων μὲν ἐπαύσατο θεσπεσίη φρὴν
παιδὸς Ἰεσσαίου ἐξ ὀλιγοδρανίης.
Ἄσαφος δ’ ἀνόρουσε καὶ ἴαχε πνεύματι θείῳ
ἑβδομάτης δεκάδος δεύτερον ὕμνον ἱείς.

Translation(s) The divinely inspired mind of David’s melodies ceased,
Jesse’s son born in his weakness.
But Asaf leapt and resounded with the divine Spirit,
delivering the seventy-second hymn.
