Vérbum iníquum et dolósum
lónge fac a me, Dómine:
Divítias et paupertátes
ne déderis míhi,
sed tántum víctui méo
tríbue necessária.

Dúo rogávi,
ne déneges míhi ántequam móriar:
Divítias et paupertátes
ne déderis míhi,
sed tántum víctui méo
tríbue necessária.

English.png English translation

An unjust and deceitful word
remove far from me, O Lord:
Riches and poverty
give me not,
but enough for my sustenance,
grant the necessities.

Two things I have asked;
do not deny me before I die:
Riches and poverty
give me not,
but enough for my sustenance,
grant the necessities.
