| Latin text
Oculi mei semper ad Dominum, quia ipse evellet de laqueo pedes meos: respice in me, et miserere mei, quoniam unicus et pauper sum ego.
My eyes are ever turned towards the Lord: for He shall pluck my feet out of the snare: look Thou upon me, and have mercy on me for I am alone and poor.
