Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Locutus sum in lingua mea:
notum fac mihi Domine finem meum et numerum dierum meorum quis est,
ut sciam quid desit mihi.

Fac mecum signum in bonum
ut videant qui oderunt me et confundantur,
quoniam tu Domine adjuvisti me et consolatus es me.

Hungarian.png Hungarian translation

Nyelvem szólásra indult:
Add tudtomra, Uram, végemet és napjaim számát,
hadd tudjam, milyen rövid az életem.

Add jelét rajtam jóságodnak,
hogy gyűlölőim lássák és szégyent valljanak,
minthogy te, Uram, megsegítesz és megvigasztalsz engem.
