Vóce méa ad Dóminum clamávi,
Vóce méa ad Dóminum deprecátus sum.
Effúndo in conspéctu éius oratiónem méam;
Et tribulatiónem méam ánte ípsum pronúntio.
Exáudi, Dómine, vócem deprecatiónis méae,
dum óro ad te.

With my voice I have cried to the Lord.
With my voice I have pleaded to the Lord.
I pour out in his sight my prayer;
And my tribulation before him I pronounce.
Hear, O Lord, the voice of my pleading,
as I pray to you.
