Judica me, Deus, et discerne causam meam

Language: Latin

1 [Psalmus David.] 
  Judica me, Deus, et discerne causam meam 
  de gente non sancta: 
  ab homine iniquo et doloso erue me.
2 Quia tu es, Deus, fortitudo mea: quare me repulisti?
  et quare tristis incedo, dum affligit me inimicus?
3 Emitte lucem tuam et veritatem tuam: ipsa me deduxerunt,
  et adduxerunt in montem sanctum tuum, et in tabernacula tua.
4 Et introibo ad altare Dei,
  ad Deum qui lætificat juventutem meam.
  Confitebor tibi in cithara, Deus, Deus meus.
5 Quare tristis es, anima mea?
  et quare conturbas me?
  Spera in Deo, quoniam adhuc confitebor illi,
  salutare vultus mei, et Deus meus.

Judge me, O God, and plead my cause

Language: English after the Latin

1 [Psalm of David.]
  Judge me, O God, and plead my cause 
  against an ungodly nation:
  O deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man.
2 For thou art the God of my strength: why dost thou cast me off?
  why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
3 O send out thy light and thy truth:
  let them lead me; let them bring me unto thy holy hill, and to thy tabernacles.
4 Then will I go unto the altar of God, 
  unto God my exceeding joy:
  yea, upon the harp will I praise thee, O God my God.
5 Why art thou cast down, O my soul?
  and why art thou disquieted within me?
  hope in God: for I shall yet praise him,
  who is the health of my countenance, and my God.
