Gregorian Chant: Circumdederunt Me
Circumdederunt Me – Latin (Ps. 17: 2,3 )
Circumdederunt me gemitus mortis, Dolores inferni circumdederunt me
Et in tribulatione mea invocavi Dominum, et exaudivit de templo sancto suo vocem mean.
Diligam te, Domine, fortitude mea
Dominus firmamentum meum, et refugium meum, et liberator meus.
Gloria Patri, et Filio, et Spiritui Sancto.
Sicut erat in principio et nunc et semper et in saecula saeculorum. Amen.
Circumdederunt Me – English (Ps. 17: 2,3 )
The sorrows of death surrounded me, the sorrow of hell encompassed me
And in my affliction I called upon the Lord, and He heard my voice from His holy Temple.
I will love Thee, o Lord, my strength
The Lord is my firmament, my refuge, and my deliverer.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost
Aas it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
