Original text and translations

Du fond de ma pensée
au fond de tous ennuis
à toi s'est adressée
ma clameur jour et nuit.
Entends ma voix plaintive
Seigneur, il est saison
ton oreille ententive
soit à mon oraison.

English.png English translation

From deep within my breast
Where deep is my dismay
To you I have addressed
My plea both night and day.
My plaintive voice please hear
O Lord, the time is fair
For your attentive ear
To hear my humble prayer.

Translation by Thomas Daughton
