Vestigia mea dirige in verbo tuo, et non dominabitur mei ulla iniquitas:
respice me et miserere mei Deus; faciem tuam illumina super me et doce me statute tua.

Translation by Edward Tambling
Direct my footsteps in your word[, O Lord], and let not any iniquity have any dominion over me:
look upon me and have mercy upon me, O God; show the light of your face upon me and teach me your statutes.

(a paraphrase of Psalm 119:133, 135)
