De profundis clamávi ad te, Dómine: Dómine, exáudi vocem meam:
Fiant aures tuæ intendéntes, in vocem deprecatiónis meæ.
Si iniquitátes observáveris, Dómine: Dómine, quis sustinébit?
Quia apud te propitiátio est: et propter legem tuam sustínui te, Dómine.
Sustínuit ánima mea in verbo eius: sperávit ánima mea in Dómino.
A custódia matutína usque ad noctem: speret Israël in Dómino.
Quia apud Dóminum misericórdia: et copiósa apud eum redémptio.
Et ipse rédimet Israël, ex ómnibus iniquitátibus eius.
Glória Patri, et Fílio, et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, et in sǽcula sæculórum.
Out of the depths I have cried to thee, O Lord: Lord, hear my voice.
Let thy ears be attentive to the voice of my supplication.
If thou, O Lord, wilt mark iniquities: Lord, who shall stand it.
For with thee there is merciful forgiveness: and by reason of thy law, I have waited for thee, O Lord.
My soul hath relied on his word: my soul hath hoped in the Lord.
From the morning watch even until night, let Israel hope in the Lord.
Because with the Lord there is mercy: and with him plentiful redemption.
And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end.
