Latin.png Latin text

Quemadmodum desiderat cervus ad fontes aquarum,
ita desiderat anima mea ad te Deus.
Sitivit anima mea ad Deum fontem vivum,
quando veniam et apparebo ante faciem Dei?

Fuerunt mihi lachrymae meae panes die ac nocte,
dum dicitur mihi quotidie: Ubi est Deus tuus?
Haec recordatus sum et effudi in me animam meam
quoniam transibo in locum tabernaculi admirabilis
usque ad domum Dei.
