Selected pages of the score.
Give ear to my words, O Lord,
consider my sighing,
for to you I pray.
Save me, O God,
for the waters have come up to my neck.
I sink in miry depths.
To you, O Lord, I lift up my soul;
in you I trust, O my God.
Arise, O Lord!
Deliver me, O my God!
Remember, O God, that my life is but a breath.
You will look for me,
but I will be no more.
Therefore I will not keep silent.
I will complain
in the bitterness of my soul.
