{In me transierunt irae tuae, et terrores tui conturbaverunt me,
cor meum conturbatum est, dereliquit me virtus mea,
dolor meus in conspectu meo semper:
ne derelinquas me, Domine, Deus meus, ne discesseris a me.

English.png English translation

Your wrath swept over me, and your terrors have destroyed me.
My heart pounds, my strength fails me,
my pain is ever with me.
Do not forsake me, o Lord, my God, be not far away from me.

This text combines quotations from psalm 38 and 88.
