Deus, in nomine
Save me, O God, for thy Name’s sake, and avenge me in thy strength. Hear my prayer, O God, and hearken unto the words of my mouth. For strangers are risen up against me; and tyrants, which have not God before their eyes, seek after my soul. Behold, God is my helper; the Lord is with them that uphold my soul. He shall reward evil unto mine enemies; destroy thou them in thy truth.
An offering of a free heart will I give thee, and praise thy Name, O Lord, because it is so comfortable. For he hath delivered me out of all my trouble; and mine eye hath seen his desire upon mine enemies.
