Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Exurge, quare obdormis Domine?
Exurge, et ne repellas in finem:
Quare faciem avertis?
Oblivisceris tribulationem nostram?

This text from the Graduale romanum differs slightly from the version in the (old) vulgate: Ps. 43:24-25

Awake, O Lord! Why do you sleep?
Rouse yourself! Do not reject us forever.
Why do you hide your face
and forget our oppression? (New International Version)
