Original text and translations
4b Illumina oculos meos, ne unquam obdormiam in morte,
5a Ne quando dicat inimicus meus. Praevalui adversus eum.
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.
