Original text and translations
Adhaesit pavimento anima mea;
vivifica me secundum verbum tuum.
Vias meas enuntiavi;
et exaudisti me.
Doce me justificationes tuas.
Viam justificationum tuarum instrue me;
et exercebor in mirabilibus tuis.
Dormitavit anima mea prae taedio;
confirma me in verbis tuis.
Viam iniquitatis amove a me,
et de lege tua miserere mei.
Viam veritatis elegi,
judicia tua non sum oblitus.
Adhaesi testimoniis tuis, Domine;
noli me confundere.
Viam mandatorum tuorum cucurri,
cum dilatasti cor meum.
My soul has cleaved to the dust;
revive me according to your word!
I told of my ways,
and you heard me;
teach me your statutes!
Instruct me in the way of your precepts,
and I will meditate on your wondrous works.
My soul has melted away for sorrow;
strengthen me according to your word!
Put false ways far from me;
and by your law have mercy on me.
I have chosen the way of truth,
I have not neglected your ordinances.
I have cleaved to your testimonies, O Lord;
let me not be put to shame!
I have run in the way of your commandments,
for you have enlarged my understanding!
