Psalm 130: Prayer Audio in Latin

{130:1} Canticum graduum David. Domine non est exaltatum cor meum: neque elati sunt oculi mei. Neque ambulavi in magnis: neque in mirabilibus super me.
{130:1} A Canticle in steps: of David. O Lord, my heart has not been exalted, and my eyes have not been raised up. Neither have I walked in greatness, nor in wonders beyond me.

{130:2} Si non humiliter sentiebam: sed exaltavi animam meam: Sicut ablactatus est super matre sua, ita retributio in anima mea.
{130:2} When I was not humble in thought, then I lifted up my soul. Like one who has been weaned from his mother, so was I recompensed in my soul.

{130:3} Speret Israel in Domino, ex hoc nunc et usque in sæculum.
{130:3} Let Israel hope in the Lord, from this time forward and even forever.
