Lectio Tertia
Language: Latin 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Manus tuae Domine fecerunt me,
et plasmaverunt me totum in circuitu:
et sic repente praecipitas me?
Memento, quaeso, quod sicut lutum feceris me, 
et in pulverem reduces me.
Nonne sicut lac mulsisti me, 
et sicut caseum me coagulasti?
Pelle et carnibus vestisti me : 
ossibus et nervis compegisti me.
Vitam et, misericordiam tribuisti mihi,
et visitatio tua custodivit spiritum meum.
