Will There Be Mercy in Dubai?

What a piece of work is man. Our sinfulness is beyond disgusting. Is there balm in Gilead?

Tristitia et anxietas
occupaverunt interiora mea.
Mœstum factum est cor meum in dolore,
et contenebrati sunt oculi mei.
Væ mihi, quia peccavi.

Sed tu, Domine,
qui non derelinquis sperantes in te,
consolare et adjuva me propter nomen sanctum tuum,
et miserere mei.

‘Sadness and anxiety
have overtaken my inmost being.
My heart is made sorrowful in mourning;
my eyes are become dim.
Woe is me, for I have sinned.

‘But thou, O Lord,
who dost not forsake those whose hope is in thee,
comfort and help me for thy holy Name’s sake,
and have mercy on me.’
