Dominus, fortitudo plebis suae,
et protector salutarium Christi sui est:
salvum fac populum tuum, Domine,
et benedic hereditati tuae,
et rege eos usque in saeculum.

Ad te, Domine, clamabo,
Deus meus, ne sileas a me:
nequando taceas a me,
et assimilabot descendentibus in lacum.
(Ps. 27:8–9; 1)

English.png English translation

The Lord is the strength of His people,
and the protector of the salvation of His anointed:
save, O Lord, Thy people,
and bless Thine inheritance,
and rule them for ever.

Unto Thee will I cry, O Lord:
O my God, be not Thou silent to me,
lest if Thou be silent to me,
I become like them that go down into the pit.
