In te, Dómine, sperávi;
Non confúndar in aetérnum;
In iustítia túa líbera me.

Esto míhi in Déum protectórem,
Et in dómum refúgii,
ut sálvum me fácias.

Edúces me de láqueo hoc
quem abscondérunt míhi,
Quoniam tu es protéctor méus.

Glória Pátri et Fílio,
et Spirítui Sáncto. Amen.

In you, O Lord, have I hoped;
I shall not be confounded, ever;
In your justice free me.

Be for me God the protector,
And a home of refuge,
that you might save me.

Lead me out of the trap here
which they have hidden for me,
For you are my protector.

Glory to the Father and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit. Amen.
