Sicut pullus hirundinis sic clamabo

Language: Latin

Sicut pullus hirundinis sic clamabo. 
Meditabor ut columba.
Attenuati sunt oculi mei suscipientes in excellum.
Recogitabo tibi omnes annos meos in amaritudine animae meae.
Domine si sic vivitur et in talibus vita spiritus mei, 
corripies me et vivificabis me.
Ecce in pace amaritudo mea amarissima.

Comme le poussin de l'hirondelle je...

Language: French (Français) after the Latin

Comme le poussin de l'hirondelle je pousserai des cris.
Je réfléchirai comme la colombe.
Mes yeux sont affaiblis en regardant le ciel.
Je repasserai dans mon esprit pour toi toutes mes années dans l'amertume de mon âme.
Seigneur si la vie de mon esprit est vécue ainsi et de cette manière,
prends-moi et fais-moi revivre.
Voici en paix mon amertume très amère.
