Ich aber bin elend, und mir ist wehe.

Herr, Herr, Gott, 
barmherzig und gnädig und geduldig
und von großer Gnade und Treue,
der du beweisest Gnade in tausend Glied,
und vergibst Missetat, Übertretung und Sünde,
und vor welchem niemand unschuldig ist.

Gott, Herr Gott, deine Hilfe schütze mich.

Jo sóc però miserable
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Jo sóc però miserable i ple d’aflicció.
Senyor, Senyor, Déu,
misericordiós i benigne i pacient
i amb la mercè i la fidelitat més grans,
tu que has mostrat la teva clemència a milers de generacions,
i perdones malifetes, ofenses i pecats,
davant dels quals ningú és innocent.

Déu, Senyor Déu, que la teva ajuda em protegeixi.
