Salvum me fac, Domine
Save me, O God! For the waters have come up to my neck.
I sink in deep mire, where there is no foothold; I have come into deep waters, and the flood sweeps over me.
For the LORD hears the needy, and does not despise his own that are in bonds.
Let heaven and earth praise him, the seas and everything that moves therein.
Salvum me fac, Deus: quoniam intraverunt aquae usque ad animam meam.
Infixus sum in limo profundi: et non est substantia.
Veni altitudinem maris: et tempestas demersit me.
Quoniam exaudivit pauperes Dominus: et vinctos suos non despexit.
Laudent illum caeli et terra, mare, et omnia reptilia in eis.
Psalm 69 : 1, 2, 33, 34
