In aetérnum non oblivíscar
iustificatiónes túas,
Quía in ípsis vivificásti me.
Ego sum túus; sálvum me fac,
Quóniam iustificatiónes túas exquisívi.
Me exspectavérunt peccatóres
ut perdérent me,
Testimónia túa intelléxi.
Látum mandátum túum nímis.

I will never forget
your precepts,
For by them you have given me life.
I am yours; save me,
For I have sought your precepts.
The wicked lie in wait for me
to destroy me;
I have considered your testimonies.
Your commandment is exceedingly broad.
