1. Declare me innocent, O Lord, for I have lived with integrity; I have put my trust in the Lord, I shall never waver.

2. Prove me, O Lord, put me to the test; examine my soul and my heart.

3. For your love is ever before my eyes, and I live in truth and faithfulness.

4. I do not associate with the deceitful nor do I go with hypocrites;

5. I hate the party of the corrupt and avoid the company of the wicked.

6. I wash my hands free of guilt and walk in procession round your altar,

7. singing hymns of praise and thanksgiving and proclaiming your wondrous deeds.

8. O Lord, I love the house where you dwell, the place of your Glory.

9. Let me not share the fate of sinners, nor lose my life with the violent;

10. their hands are guilty of crimes, their right hands are weighed down with bribes.

11. But I will walk in integrity. Redeem me, O God, be gracious to me.

12. My foot stands firm in the straight path, I will praise you, O Lord, in your assemblies.

“Seja paciente nas aflições que o Senhor lhe manda.” São Padre Pio de Pietrelcina
