Psalmus
(Ps. 122) Ad te levávi óculos meos,
qui hábitas in cælis.
2. Ecce sicut óculi servórum,
in mánibus dominórum suórum.
3. Sicut óculi ancíllæ in mánibus dóminæ suæ:
ita óculi nostri ad Dóminum, Deum nostrum, donec misereátur nostri.
4. Miserére nostri, Dómine, miserére nostri:
quia multum repléti sumus despectióne:
5. Quia multum repléta est ánima nostra:
oppróbrium abundántibus, et despéctio supérbis.
6. Réquiem ætérnam
dona eis Dómine.
7. Et lux perpétua
lúceat eis.
8. (Ps. 123) Nisi quia Dóminus erat in nobis, dicat nunc Israël:
nisi quia Dóminus erat in nobis,
9. Cum exsúrgerent hómines in nos,
forte vivos deglutíssent nos:
10. Cum irascerétur furor eórum in nos,
fórsitan aqua absorbuísset nos.
11. Torréntem pertransívit ánima nostra:
fórsitan pertransísset ánima nostra aquam intolerábilem.
12. Benedíctus Dóminus
qui non dedit nos, in captiónem déntibus eórum.
13. Anima nostra sicut passer erépta est
de láqueo venántium.
14. Láqueus contrítus est,
et nos liberáti sumus.
15. Adjutórium nostrum in nómine Dómini,
qui fecit cælum et terram.
16. Réquiem ætérnam
dona eis Dómine.
17. Et lux perpétua
lúceat eis.
18. (Ps. 124) Qui confídunt in Dómino, sicut mons Sion:
non commovébitur in ætérnum, qui hábitat in Jerúsalem.
19. Montes in circúitu ejus:
et Dóminus in circúitu pópuli sui,
ex hoc nunc et usque in sǽculum.
20. Quia non relínquet Dóminus virgam peccatórum super sortem justórum:
ut non exténdant justi ad iniquitátem manus suas.
21. Bénefac, Dómine, bonis,
et rectis corde.
22. Declinántes autem in obligatiónes addúcet Dóminus cum operántibus iniquitátem:
pax super Israël.
23. Réquiem ætérnam
dona eis Dómine.
24. Et lux perpétua
lúceat eis.
(Ps. 122) To you I lift up my eyes,
to you enthroned in the heavens.
2. As the eyes of servants look to the hand of their masters,
and the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress,
3. So our eyes look to the Lord our God,
until he show us his mercy.
4. Have mercy upon us, O Lord, have mercy,
for we have had more than enough of contempt,
5. Too much of the scorn of the indolent rich,
and of the derision of the proud.
6. Eternal rest
grant unto them, O Lord,
7. and let perpetual light
shine upon them.
8. (Pps. 123) If the Lord had not been on our side,
let Israel now say;
9. If the Lord had not been on our side,
when enemies rose up against us;
10. Then would they have swallowed us up alive
in their fierce anger toward us;
11. Then would the waters have overwhelmed us
and the torrent gone over us;
12. Then would the raging waters
have gone right over us.
13. Blessed be the Lord!
he has not given us over to be a prey for their teeth.
14. We have escaped like a bird from the snare of the fowler;
the snare is broken, and we have escaped.
15. Our help is in the Name of the Lord,
the maker of heaven and earth.
16. Eternal rest
grant unto them, O Lord,
17. and let perpetual light
shine upon them.
18. (Ps. 124) Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion,
which cannot be moved, but stands fast for ever.
19. The hills stand about Jerusalem;
so does the Lord stand round about his people, from this time forth for evermore.
20. The scepter of the wicked shall not hold sway over the land allotted to the just,
so that the just shall not put their hands to evil.
21. Show your goodness, O Lord, to those who are good
and to those who are true of heart.
22. As for those who turn aside to crooked ways,
the Lord will lead them away with the evildoers;
but peace be upon Israel.
23. Eternal rest
grant unto them, O Lord,
24. and let perpetual light
shine upon them.
