Versa est in luctum cithara mea,
et organum meum in vocem flentium.
Parce mihi Domine,
nihil enim sunt dies mei.

Minha harpa voltou-se ao luto
e minha flauta à voz dos que choram.
Apiedai-vos de mim, Senhor,
pois como nada são os meus dias.

Mijn harp is gestemd voor geweeklaag 

en mijn fluit voor de stem van hen die wenen.
Spaar mij, Heer,

want nietig zijn mijn dagen.

My harp is turned to grieving
and my flute to the voice of those who weep.
Spare me, O Lord,
for my days are as nothing.

Vuelta está al luto mi cítara
y mi órgano a la voz de los que lloran.
Ten consideración de mí, Señor,
pues nada son mis días.
