Troisième leçon de ténèbres du Jeudi...

Language: Latin

Aleph. Ego vir videns paupertatem meam 
in virga indignationis ejus.
Me minavit, et adduxit in tenebras, 
et non in lucem.
Tantum in me vertit 
et convertit manum suam tota die.

Beth. Vetustam fecit pellem meam 
et carnem meam, contrivit ossa mea.
Aedificavit in gyro meo, 
et circumdedit me felle et labore.
In tenebrosis collocavit me, 
quasi mortuos sempiternos.

Ghimel. Circumaedificavit adversum me, 
ut non egrediar; aggravavit compedem meum.
Sed et cum clamavero, et rogavero, 
exclusit orationem meam.
Conclusit vias meas lapidibus quadris,
semitas meas subvertit.
