Original text and translations

French.png French text

A toi je crie, O Jesus Christ.
Veuillez ouir ma plainte; delivre moi, par ton éprit,
de mal peché et crainte.
Au droit chemin rends moi certain et mon âme console
pour vivr'à toi en aimant mon prochain
et garder ta parole.

English.png English translation

Unto thee I cry, O Jesus Christ.
Acknowledge my plainings; deliver me, by thy spirit,
from wickedness and fear.
Confirm me in the right path and comfort my soul,
that I may live in thee, loving my neighbour,
and may uphold thy word.

(Trans. Timmi O'Danaos & Donna Ferrentes)
