Turn Thee unto me, O Lord: O Lord, have mercy upon me,for I am desolate and in misery.
The sorrows of my heart are enlarged: O bring thou me out of my troubles.
Look upon my adversity: and forgive me all my sin.
O keep my soul and deliver me: let me not be confounded, for I have put my trust in Thee.

German.png German translation

Wende dich zu mir und sei mir gnädig; denn ich bin einsam und elend.
Die Angst meines Herzens ist groß; führe mich aus meinen Nöten!
Siehe an meinen Jammer und Elend und vergib mir alle meine Sünde!
Bewahre meine Seele und errette mich; laß mich nicht zuschanden werden, denn ich traue auf dich.
