Latin.png Latin text

Versa est in luctum cithara mea,
et organum meum in vocem flentium.
Parce mihi Domine,
nihil enim sunt dies mei.
Cutis mea denigrata est super me
et ossa mea aruerunt.

My harp is tuned for lamentation,
and my flute to the voice of those who weep.
Spare me, O Lord,
for my days are as nothing.
My skin is become black upon me,
and my bones are dried up.
