From the Vulgate
, where it is listed, according to the Catholic
manner, as Psalm 118
Clamavi in toto corde exaudi me Domine praecepta tua custodiam.
Invocavi te salvum me fac et custodiam testimonia tua.
Surgebam adhuc in tenebris et clamabam verbum tuum expectans.
Praeveniebant oculi mei vigilias ut meditarer in sermonibus tuis.
Vocem meam audi iuxta misericordiam tuam Domine secundum iudicium tuum vivifica me.
Adpropinquaverunt persecutores mei sceleri et a lege tua procul facti sunt.
Prope es tu Domine et omnia mandata tua veritas.
A principio novi de testimoniis tuis quod in aeternum fundaveris ea.
