Psalm 24:16, 18, 1-2a (Vulgate)

Respice in me, et miserere mei, Domine :
    quoniam unicus et pauper sum ego.
Vide humilitatem meam, et laborem meum :
    et dimitte omnia peccata mea Deus meus.

Ad te, Domine, levavi animam meam :
    Deus meus, in te confido, non erubescam.
Gloria Patri...

Psalm 25:16, 18, 1-2a

Turn to me and have mercy on me, O Lord,
    for I am lonely and afflicted.
Consider my shame and my trouble
    and forgive all my sins, my God.

To thee, O Lord, I lift up my soul :
    my God, in thee I put my trust, let me not be ashamed.
Glory be to the Father...
