Original text and translations
Miserere mihi, Domine, quoniam ad te clamavi tota die:
quia tu, Domine, suavis ac mitis es
et copiosus in misericordia omnibus invocantibus te.
Inclina, Domine, aurem tuam mihi
et exaudi me: quoniam inops et pauper sum ego.
Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I have cried to Thee all the day;
for Thou, O Lord, art sweet and mild
and plenteous in mercy to all that call upon Thee.
Bow down Thine ear to me, O Lord,
and hear me: for I am needy and poor.
