Psalm 25: 1-3a [Latin] – Unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul. O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me. Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed: let them be ashamed which transgress without cause.

Original Latin:

Ad te, Domine, levavi animam meam; Deus meus, in te confido; non erubescam; Neque irrideant me inimici mei; etenim qui te exspectant non confudentur.
