Latin.png Latin text

Ad te levávi óculos meos, qui hábitas in cælis.
V. Ecce sicut óculi servórum in mánibus dominórum suórum.
V. Et sicut óculi ancíllæ in mánibus dóminæ suæ:
ita óculi nostri ad Dóminum Deum nostrum, donec misereátur nostri.
V. Miserére nobis, Dómine, miserére nobis.

To Thee have I lifted up my eyes, who dwellest in heaven.
V. Behold as the eyes of servants are on the hands of their masters.
V. And as the eyes of the handmaid are on the hands of her mistress:
so are our eyes unto the Lord our God, until He have mercy on us.
V. Have mercy on us, O Lord, have mercy on us.
