Lyrics: Psalm 22, v.2-6

Deus, Deus meus, respice in me: quare me dereliquisti? longe a salute mea verba delictorum meorum.
Deus meus, clamabo per diem, et non exaudies; et nocte, et non ad insipientiam mihi.
Tu autem in sancto habitas, laus Israël.
In te speraverunt patres nostri; speraverunt, et liberasti eos.
Ad te clamaverunt, et salvi facti sunt; in te speraverunt, et non sunt confusi.

My God, my God, look upon me; why hast thou forsaken me: and art so far from my health, and from the words of my complaint?
O my God, I cry in the day-time, but thou hearest not: and in the night-season also I take no rest.
And thou continuest holy: O thou worship of Israel.
Our fathers hoped in thee: they trusted in thee, and thou didst deliver them.
They called upon thee, and were holpen: they put their trust in thee, and were not confounded.
