The Bible in Literature

From Shakespeare's Henry V Act IV Scene 8
Do we all holy rites;
Let there be sung Non nobis and Te Deum;
The dead with charity enclosed in clay:
And then to Calais; and to England then:
Where ne'er from France arrived more happy men.
Psalm for Evening Prayer on the Second Sunday of Advent
Psalm 115. Non nobis, Domine.
Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto thy Name give the praise; * for thy loving mercy, and for thy truth's sake.

In the Vulgate
Non nobis Domine non nobis sed nomini tuo da gloriam
