Lyrics: Latin Antiphon

Insurrexerunt in me viri iniqui
absque misericordia quæsierunt me interficere
et non pepercerunt in faciem meam spuere
et lanceis vulneraverunt me et concussa sunt omnia ossa mea
Effuderunt furorem suum in me, tremuerunt contra me dentibus suis.
ego autem æstimabam me tamquam mortuum super terram.

False witnesses are risen up against me,
and such as breathe out cruelty they have gone about to kill me,
neither spared they to spit in my face;
their spears have wounded me, and all my bones are out of joint.
They have unloaded their anger on me, and have made me to tremble with their teeth.
but as for me, I counted myself as one that is dead upon the earth.
