Psalm 063 (Vulg., 062) -- Christ-Logos, as half figure, wearing crossed nimbus and miter, appears in cloud-edged arc of heaven, rayed. He makes gesture of blessing with his right hand and in his left hand holds cross-surmounted globe. Below is emperor, wearing imperial crown, kneeling with joined hands raised, beside harp leaning against tree. Beside him are two kneeling kings, wearing crowns, the foremost with joined hands raised. A third figure, wearing hat (?), is behind them. Scene in landscape setting.
Margin is decorated with foliate border, including roses, daisies, cornflowers, and thistles, inhabited by hybrid man and bird.
