Deus, in adiutorium meum intende:
Domine, ad adiuvandum me festina.
Confundantur et reverantur,
qui quaerunt animam meam.
et erubescant qui volunt mihi mala.
Avertantur statim erubescentes
qui dicent mihi: Euge, euge.
Exsultent et laetentur in te omnes
qui quaerunt te, et dicant semper:
qui diligunt salutare tuum.
Ego vero egenus et pauper sum:
Deus adjuva me.
Adjutor meus et liberator meus es tu:
Domine ne moreris.
Gloria Patri, et Filio, et Spiritui Sancto:
Sicut erat in principio, et nunc, et semper,
et in sæcula sæculorum. Amen.
Haste thee, O God, to deliver me:
make haste to help me, O Lord.
Let them be ashamed and confounded
that seek after my soul:
let them be turned backward and put to confusion
that wish me evil.
Let them for their reward be soon brought to shame:
that cry over me, There, there.
But let all those that seek thee
be joyful and glad in thee:
and let all such as delight in thy salvation say alway,
The Lord be praised.
As for me, I am poor and in misery:
haste thee unto me, O God.
Thou art my helper and my redeemer:
O Lord, make no long tarrying.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Ghost:
As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be,
world without end. Amen.
