PSALM LXVIII

Save me, O Lady: for the waters of concupiscence have entered into my very
soul.

I am stuck fast in the mire of sin: and the waters of pleasure have
encompassed me.

Weeping, I have wept in the night: and the day of joy has arisen for me.

Save my soul, O Mother of the Savior: for by thee true salvation was given
to the world.

While thou wast overshadowed when the Angel spoke to thee: and becamest
pregnant with the Wisdom of the Father.

Glory be to the Father, etc.
