Vias tuas, Domine, demonstra mihi,
et semitas tuas edoce me.
Dirige me in veritate tua,
quia tu es Deus salvator meus,
et te sustinui tota die.
Custodi animam meam, et erue me:
quoniam sustinui te. (from Ps. XXIV)

2nda pars:
Eripe me de inimici meis, Domine
ad te confugi, doce me facere
voluntatem tuam quia deus meus es tu
educes de tribulatione animam miam
et in misericordia tua
disperdes omnes inimico meos
quoniam servus tuus sum. (from Ps. CXLIII)

Show me thy ways, O Lord,
and teach me thy paths.
Lead me forth in thy truth,
for thou art the God of my salvation,
and in thee hath been my hope all the day long. (Ps 25.3-4)
O keep my soul and deliver me:
for I have put my trust in thee. (Ps. 25.19)

2nd part:
Deliver me, O Lord, from my enemies:
for I flee unto thee. Teach me to do
thy will, for thou art my God.
Lead my soul out of trouble
and in thy mercy
slay all my enemies,
for I am thy servant. (Ps. 143.9-12)
