4b  Illumina oculos meos, ne unquam obdormiam in morte,

5a  Ne quando dicat inimicus meus. Praevalui adversus eum.

5b  Qui tribulant me exultabunt si motus fuero.

6  Ego autem in misericordia tua speravi, Exultavit cor meum in salutary tuo.

Cantabo Domino qui bona tribuit mihi et psallam nomini Domini altissimi.

3b  Lighten mine eyes, that I sleep not in death.

4a  Lest my enemy say "I have prevailed against him."

4b  for if I be cast down, they that trouble me will rejoice at it.

5  But my trust is in thy mercy : and my heart is joyful in thy salvation.

6  I will sing of the Lord, because he hath dealt so lovingly with me : yea, I will praise the Name of the Lord most highest.
