19) De Profundis Clamavi

Du fons de ma pensée Out of the depths of my thoughts
Au fons de tous ennuis, out of the pit of my troubles
A toy s’est adressée, to thee are directed
Ma clameur jours et nuicts. my cries day and night.
Enten ma voix plantive, Hear my plaintive voice,
Seigneur, il est saison, Lord, it is time to
Ton aureille ententive let thy ears be attentive
Soit à mon oraison. to the voice of my supplications!
Si ta rigueur expresse If through your righteous rigor
En noz pechez tu tiens, shouldst mark iniquities
Seigneur, Seigneur, qui estce, Lord, Lord, who could stand
Qui demourra des tiens? of your people?
Or n’estu point severe, For you are not harsh,
Mais propice à mercy: but there is forgiveness with thee:
C’est pourquoi on revere hence we worship you
Toy, et ta Loy aussi. and also your Law.
