Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Da mihi auxilium de tribulatione, quia vana salus hominis:
Aut aliquid saltem respirandi tempus, ut plangam juventutem meam.

English.png English translation

Give me help out of tribulation, because man’s salvation is vain:
or some time at least to recover, that I may bewail my youth.

German.png German translation

Gib mir Hilfe in der Bedrängnis, denn das Heil der Menschen ist eitel:
Oder wenigstens etwas Zeit zum Aufatmen, damit ich meine Jugend beweine.
