Biblical Songs (Op. 99)

Popatřiž na mne a smiluj se nade mnou

Popatřiž na mne a smiluj se nade mnou;
Nebot' jsem opuštěný a ztrápený.
Soužení srdce mého rozmnožují se,
Z úzkostí mých vyved' mne.
Smiluj se nade mnou!
Viz trápení mé a bídu mou
A odpust' všecky hřichy mé.
Ostříhej duše mé a vytrhni mne
At' nejsem zahanben,
Nebot' v Tebe doufám.

Turn thee unto me

Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me; for I am desolate and afflicted. The troubles of my heart are enlarged: O bring thou me out of my distresses. Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my sins. O keep my soul, and deliver me: let me not be ashamed; for I put my trust in thee.
Psalm 25:16-18,20
