Psalm 38:1 [English]

1 O Lord, rebuke me not in thy wrath: neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.

Have mercy upon me, O Lord, for I am weak:
O Lord, heal me, for my bones are vexed.
My soul is also sore troubled:
but, Lord, how long wilt thou punish me?
O save me, for thy mercy’s sake.

O Lord, in thy wrath, composed by Orlando Gibbons (1583-1625)

Psalm 38:9-10 [Latin]

O Lord, all my longing is before you;
    my sighing is not hidden from you.
10 My heart throbs; my strength fails me,
    and the light of my eyes—it also has gone from me.

Domine ante te omne desiderium, composed by William Byrd (c. 1540-1623)
