My soul lies in the dust

by your will revive me.

I declared my ways and you answered;
teach me your statutes.

St. Dominic meditating on the Passion of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ - from a painting by Fra Angelico

Make me grasp the way of your precepts
and I will muse on your wonders.

My soul pines away with grief;
by your word raise me up.

Keep me from the way of error
and teach me your law.

I have chosen the way of truth
with your decrees before me.

I bind myself to do your will;
Lord, do not disappoint me.

I will run the way of your commands;
you give freedom to my heart.
Psalm 119:25-32
