Me suscépit déxtera tua, Dómine.
(Ps. 62) Deus, Deus meus,
ad te de luce vígilo.
2. Sitívit in te ánima mea,
quam multiplíciter tibi caro mea.
3. In terra desérta, et ínvia, et inaquósa:
sic in sancto appárui tibi,
ut vidérem virtútem tuam, et glóriam tuam.
4. Quóniam mélior est misericórdia tua super vitas:
lábia mea laudábunt te.
5. Sic benedícam te in vita mea:
et in nómine tuo levábo manus meas.
6. Sicut ádipe et pinguédine repleátur ánima mea:
et lábiis exsultatiónis laudábit os meum.
7. Si memor fui tui super stratum meum,
in matutínis meditábor in te:
quia fuísti adjútor meus.
8. Et in velaménto alárum tuárum exsultábo,
adhǽsit ánima mea post te:
me suscépit déxtera tua.
9. Ipsi vero in vanum quæsiérunt ánimam meam,
introíbunt in inferióra terræ:
tradéntur in manus gládii, partes vúlpium erunt.
10. Rex vero lætábitur in Deo,
laudabúntur omnes qui jurant in eo:
quia obstrúctum est os loquéntium iníqua.
11. Réquiem ætérnam
dona eis Dómine.
12. Et lux perpétua
lúceat eis.
Me suscépit déxtera tua, Dómine.
Your right hand raises me up. O Lord
(Ps. 62) O God, you are my God;
eagerly I seek you;
2. my soul thirsts for you,
my flesh faints for you,
3. as in a barren and dry land where there is no water.
† Therefore I have gazed upon you in your holy place,
that I might behold your power and your glory.
4. For your loving-kindness is better than life itself;
my lips shall give you praise.
5. So will I bless you as long as I live
and lift up my hands in your Name.
6. My soul is content, as with marrow and fatness,
and my mouth praises you with joyful lips,
7. When I remember you upon my bed,
† and meditate on you in the night watches.
For you have been my helper,
8. and under the shadow of your wings I will rejoice.
† My soul clings to you;
your right hand holds me fast.
9. May those who seek my life to destroy it
† go down into the depths of the earth;
Let them fall upon the edge of the sword, and let them be food for jackals.
10. But the king will rejoice in God;
† all those who swear by him will be glad;
for the mouth of those who speak lies shall be stopped.
11. Eternal rest
grant unto them, O Lord,
12. and may perpetual light
shine upon them.
Your right hand raises me up. O Lord
