From the Vulgate
, where it is listed, according to the Catholic
manner, as Psalm 118
Ingrediatur laus mea coram te Domine secundum verbum tuum doce me.
Veniat deprecatio mea ante vultum tuum secundum eloquium tuum libera me.
Fundant labia mea hymnum docebis enim me praecepta tua.
Loquetur lingua mea sermonem tuum quia omnia mandata tua iusta.
Sit manus tua auxiliatrix mea quia praecepta tua elegi.
Desideravi salutare tuum Domine et lex tua voluntas mea.
Vivet anima mea et laudabit te et iudicia tua auxiliabuntur mihi.
Erravi quasi ovis perdita quaere servum tuum quia mandatorum tuorum non sum oblitus.
