Psalm 39:12-13 [Latin]

12 Hear my prayer, O Lord, and give ear unto my cry; hold not thy peace at my tears: for I am a stranger with thee, and a sojourner, as all my fathers were.

13 O spare me, that I may recover strength, before I go hence, and be no more.

Exaudi orationem meam, from Symphony of Psalms (1930) by Igor Stravinsky (1882-1971)
