Voce mea ad Dominum.

I cried unto the LORD | with my voice;

* yea, even unto the LORD did I | make my supplication.

2 I poured out my com- | -plaints before him,

* and | showed him of my trouble.

3 When my spirit was in heaviness, thou | knewest• my path;

* in the way wherein I walked, have they privily | laid a snare for me.

4 I looked also upon my | right hand,

* and saw there was | no man that would know me.

5 I had no place to | flee unto,

* and no man | cared for my soul.

6 I cried unto thee, O | LORD, and said,

* Thou art my hope, and my portion in the | land of the living.

7 Consider | my complaint;

* for I am | brought very low.

8 O deliver me | from my persecutors;

* for they | are too strong for me.

9 Bring my soul out of prison, that I may give thanks | unto• thy Name;

* which thing if thou wilt grant me, then shall the righteous re- | -sort •unto• my company.

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.  Amen.
