Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Oculi mei semper ad Dominum, quia ipse evellet de laqueo pedes meos: respice in me, et miserere mei, quoniam unicus et pauper sum ego.
Ad te, Domine, levavi animam meam: Deus meus, in te confido, non erubescam.

My eyes are ever turned towards the Lord: for He shall pluck my feet out of the snare: look Thou upon me, and have mercy on me for I am alone and poor.
To Thee, O Lord, have I lifted up my soul: in Thee, O my God, I put my trust; let me not be ashamed.
