Lyrics: Psalm 119, v. 113-117

Iniquos odio habui, et legem tuam dilexi.
Adjutor et susceptor meus es tu, et in verbum tuum supersperavi.
Declinate a me, maligni, et scrutabor mandata Dei mei.
Suscipe me secundum eloquium tuum, et vivam, et non confundas me ab exspectatione mea.
Adjuva me, et salvus ero.

I hate them that imagine evil things: but thy law do I love.
Thou art my defence and shield: and my trust is in thy word.
Away from me, ye wicked: I will keep the commandments of my God.
O stablish me according to thy word, that I may live: and let me not be disappointed of my hope.
Hold thou me up, and I shall be safe.
