Spiritus meus attenuabitur, dies mei breviabuntur,
et solum mihi superest sepulcrum.
Non peccavi, et in amaritudinibus moratur oculus meus.
Libera me, Domine, et pone me juxta te,
et cujusvis manus pugnet contra me.

Dies mei transierunt; cogitationes meae dissipatae sunt, torquentes cor meum.
Noctem verterunt in diem, et rursum post tenebras spero lucem.
Si sustinuero infenus domus mea est; et in tenebris stravi lectulum meum.
Putredini dixi: Pater meus es; mater mea, et soror mea, vermibus.
Ubi est ergo nunc praestolatio mea et patientia mea?
Tu es Domine Deus meus.
