Symphony of Psalms


1. (Psalm 38, verses 13 and 14)

Exaudi orationem meam, Domine, et deprecationem meam. Auribus percipe lacrimas meas. Ne sileas, ne sileas. Hear my prayer, O Lord, and with Thine ears consider my calling: hold not Thy peace at my tears.
Quoniam advena ego sum apud te et peregrinus, sicut omnes patres mei. For I am a stranger with Thee: and a sojourner, as all my fathers were.
Remitte mihi, prius quam abeam et amplius non ero. O spare me a little that I may recover my strength: before I go hence and be no more seen.

2. (Psalm 39, verses 2, 3 and 4)

Expectans expectavi Dominum, et intendit mihi. I waited patiently for the Lord: and He inclined unto me, and heard my calling.
Et exaudivit preces meas; et exudit me da lacu miseriae, et de lato faecis. He brought me also out of the horrible pit, out of the mire and clay:
Et statuit super petram pedes meos: et direxis gressus meos. and set my feet upon the rock, and ordered my goings.
Et immisit in os meum canticum novrum, carmen Deo nostro. And He hath put a new song in my mouth: even a thanksgiving unto our God.
Videbunt multi, videbunt et timabunt: et aperabunt in Domino. Many shall see it and fear: and shall put their trust in the Lord.

3. (Psalm 150)

Laudate Erum firmamentis virtutis Ejus. praise Him in the firmament of His power.
