Levabo oculos meos
et considerabo mirabilia tua Domine
ut doceas me justitias tuas.
Da mihi intellectum
et discam mandata tua.
(Psalm 119:18, 26, 73)

I will lift up mine eyes,
and consider thy wonders, O Lord,
that thou teach me thy justices;
give me understanding,
and I will learn thy commandments.
Translation by St Ann choir
