Unde véniet auxílium mihi?
Timor et tremor venérunt super me
Et contexérent me ténebræ.
Unde véniet auxílium mihi?
Indúta est caro mea a putrédine
et sórdibus púlveris.
Cutis mea áruit et contrácta est.
Unde véniet auxílium mihi?
Auxílium meum a Dómino
Quia non repéllet plebem suam
Et hereditátem suam non derelínquet.
Læténtur omnes qui sperant in eum
Quóniam in ætérnum exultábunt
Et lætabúntur in sæculum sæculi.
Auxílium meum a Dómino.
From whence shall my help come to me?
Fear and trembling come over me
And darkness has covered me.
From whence shall my help come to me?
My flesh is clothed with worms and clods of dust.
My skin is broken and become loathsome.
From whence shall my help come to me?
My help is from the Lord
For he does not reject his people
And does not desert his inheritors.
Let all rejoice who hope in him
For they shall exult in eternity
And be joyful forever and ever.
My help is from the Lord.
