1. Preghiera di Maria Stuarda [sung text checked 1 time]

O Domine Deus 
speravi in te.
O care mi Jesu, 
nunc libera me!
In dura catena, 
in misera poena,
Desidero te;
Languendo, gemendo 
et genuflectendo
Adoro, imploro 
ut liberes me!

Premat mundus, insurgant hostes, nihil timeo 
Quoniam in Te Domine speravi,
Quoniam Tu es spes mea,
Quoniam Tu altissimum posuisti refugium Tuum.
