PSALM XXXVIII

I said: I will keep my ways, O Lady: when by thee the grace of Christ was
given to me.

By thy sweetness my soul was melted: my bowels are inflamed by thy love.

Hear my prayer, O Lady, and my supplication: and let mine enemies pine
away.

Have mercy on me from Heaven and from the height of thy throne: and permit
me not to be troubled in the valley of misery.

Keep my foot, lest it should be injured: and may thy grace be with my end.

Glory be to the Father, etc.
