Dominus illuminatio mea, et salus mea, quem timebo?
Dominus defensor vitae meae,a quo trepidabo?
Qui tribulant me inimici mei, ipsi infirmati sunt, et ceciderunt.
Si consistant adversum me castra: non timebit cor meum.

Exaudi, Domine, vocem meam, qua clamavi ad te:
adjutor meus esto, ne derelinquam me, ne que despicias me, Domine, Deus salutaris meus.
Dominus illuminatio mea,

The Lord is my light and my Salvation: whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the protector of my life: of whom shall I be afraid?
My enemies thattrouble me have themselves been weakend and have fallen.

If armies in camp should stand together against me,
my heart shall not fear.

Hear, O Lord, my voice which I have cried to Thee: be Thou my helper,
forsake me not, nor do Thou despise me, O God, my Saviour.

The Lord is my light, and my salvation, whom shall I fear?
