Original text and translations
Da pacem, Domine, sustinentibus te,
ut prophetae tui fideles inveniantur:
exaudi preces servi tui, et plebis tuae Israel.
Laetatus sum, in his, quae dicta sunt mihi: in domum Domini ibimus.
Give peace, O Lord, to them that patiently wait for Thee, that Thy prophets may be found faithful: hear the prayers of Thy servant and of They people Israel.
I rejoiced at things that were said to me: we shall go into the house of the Lord.
