* like a lion hath he bones.

Betwixt evening and morning wilt thou make an end of are : * like a swallow's young will I cry, I will mourn like the dove..

Recogitabo tibi omnes annos meos,* in amaritudine animae meae.

Domine, si sic vivitur; et in talibus vita spiritus mei: corripies me, et vivificabis me: * ecce in pace amaritudo mea amarissima.

Tu autem eruisti animam meam, ut non periret: * projecisti post tergum tuum omnia peccata mea.

Quia non infernus confitebitur tibi, neque mors laudabit te: * non expecwill they, who go down into the pit, look for thy sure promise.

The man alive, the man alive, shall give praise to thee, as I this day ; * the father to his children shall make known thy sure promise.
