My God, my God,All who see me laugh at me,
O why have you abandoned me?
they mock me and they shake their heads:
"He relied on the Lord,
let the Lord be his refuge." (Antiphon)
As dogs around me,
they circle me about.
Wounded me and pierced me,
I can number all my bones. (Antiphon)
My clothing they divided,
for my garments casting lots,
O Lord, do not desert me,
but hasten to my aid. (Antiphon)
I will praise you to my people,
and proclaim you in their midst,
O fear the Lord, my people,
give glory to God's name. (Antiphon)
