You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of April 20, we are $4,600 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Domine, exaudi orationem meam

Language: Latin

  [Psalmus David, quando persequebatur eum Absalom filius ejus.]
   Domine, exaudi orationem meam;
   auribus percipe obsecrationem meam in veritate tua;
   exaudi me in tua justitia.
2  Et non intres in judicium cum servo tuo,
   quia non justificabitur in conspectu tuo omnis vivens.
3  Quia persecutus est inimicus animam meam;
   humiliavit in terra vitam meam;
   collocavit me in obscuris, sicut mortuos sæculi.
4  Et anxiatus est super me spiritus meus;
   in me turbatum est cor meum.
5  Memor fui dierum antiquorum;
   meditatus sum in omnibus operibus tuis:
   in factis manuum tuarum meditabar.
6  Expandi manus meas ad te;
   anima mea sicut terra sine aqua tibi.
7  Velociter exaudi me, Domine;
   defecit spiritus meus.
   Non avertas faciem tuam a me,
   et similis ero descendentibus in lacum.
8  Auditam fac mihi mane misericordiam tuam,
   quia in te speravi.
   Notam fac mihi viam in qua ambulem,
   quia ad te levavi animam meam.
9  Eripe me de inimicis meis, Domine:
   ad te confugi.
10 Doce me facere voluntatem tuam,
   quia Deus meus es tu.
   Spiritus tuus bonus deducet me in terram rectam.
11 Propter nomen tuum, Domine, vivificabis me:
   in æquitate tua, educes de tribulatione animam meam,
12 et in misericordia tua disperdes inimicos meos,
   et perdes omnes qui tribulant animam meam,
   quoniam ego servus tuus sum.
