Reminiscere miserationum tuarum, Domine,
et misericordiae tuae, quae a seculo sunt;
ne unquam dominentur nobis inimici nostri:
libera nos Deus Israel ex omnibus angustis nostris.

Ad te Domine levavi animam meam:
Deus meus in te confido, non erubescam.
(Psalm 25 (24):6,3,22,1-2)

English.png English translation

Remember, O Lord, thy bowels of compassion;
and thy mercies that are from the beginning of the world.
Neither let my enemies laugh at me: for none of them that wait on thee shall be confounded.
Deliver Israel, O God, from all his tribulations.

To thee, O Lord, have I lifted up my soul.
In thee, O my God, I put my trust; let me not be ashamed.
(after Douay Bible, 1609)
