Ad te levávi óculos meos, * qui hábitas in caelis.
Ecce, sicut óculi servórum * in mánibus dominórum suórum,
Sicut óculi ancíllae in mánibus dóminae suae: * ita óculi nostri ad Dóminum, Deum nostrum, donec misereátur nostri.
Miserére nostri, Dómine, miserére nostri: * quia multum repléti sumus despectióne:
Quia multum repléta est ánima nostra: * oppróbrium abundántibus, et despéctio supérbis.
Glória Patri, et Fílio, * et Spirítui Sancto.
Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, * et in sáecula saeculórum. Amen.
To thee have I lifted up my eyes, * who dwellest in heaven.
Behold as the eyes of servants * are on the hands of their masters,
As the eyes of the handmaid are on the hands of her mistress: * so are our eyes unto the Lord our God, until he have mercy on us.
Have mercy on us, O Lord, have mercy on us: * for we are greatly filled with contempt.
For our soul is greatly filled: * we are a reproach to the rich, and contempt to the proud.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.
As it was in the beginning, is now, * and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
