Quis mihi hoc tribuat ut in inferno protegas me
et abscondas me donec pertranseat furor tuus,
et constituas mihi tempus in quo recorderis mei,
putasne mortuus homo rursum vivat,
cunctis diebus quibus nunc milito
expecto donec veniat immutatio mea.

Vocabis me et ego respondebo tibi,
operi manuum tuarum porriges dexteram,
tu quidem gressus meos dinumerasti,
sed parce peccatis meis.

Who will grant me this, that in hell thou protect me,
and hide me, till thy fury pass,
and appoint me a time, wherein thou wilt remember me?
Shall man that is dead, thinkest thou live again?
All the days, in which I am now in warfare,
I expect until my change do come.

Thou shalt call me, and I shall answer thee,
to the work of thy hands, thou shalt reach thy right hand.
Thou indeed hast numbered my steps,
but spare thou my sins.
