Officium passionis domini, Fontes Franciscani, p. 158-159

5In te confirmatus sum ex utero,
de ventre matris meae tu es protector meus*
in te cantatio mea semper.
6Repleatur os meum laude
ut cantem gloriam tuam*
tota die magnitudinem tuam.
7Exaudi me, Domine, quoniam benigna est misericordia tua*
secundum multitudinem miserationum tuarum respice in me.
8Et ne avertas faciem tuam a puero tuo*
quoniam tribulor, velociter exaudi me.
9Benedictus Dominus Deus meus
quia factus est susceptor meus et refugium meum*
in die tribulationis meae.
10Adiutor meus tibi psallam, quia Deus susceptor meus*
Deus meus, misericordia mea.
