St. Bonaventure, Virgin and Child

Psalm 3

PSALM 3 O Lady, why are they multiplied who afflict me? By thy might thou shalt follow them and scatter them. Loose the bands of our impiety: take away the burden of our sins. Have mercy on me, O Lady, and heal my sickness: take away the grief and anguish of my heart. Deliver me not into the hands of my enemies: and in the day of my death strengthen thou my soul. Lead me into the harbor of salvation: and give up for me my spirit to my Maker and Creator.
