Because someone asked my opinion - here it is.

Inclina, Domine, aurem tuam ad me, et exaudi me: salvum fac servum tuum, Dues meus, sperantem in te: miserere mihi, Domine, quoniam ad te clamavi tota die. Ps. Laetifica animam servi tui: quoniam ad te, Domine, animam meam levavi. Ps. 85(86): 1-4 [Graduale Romanum, pp. 326]

1 Incline thy ear, O LORD, and answer me, for I am poor and needy. Preserve my life, for I am godly; save thy servant who trusts in thee. Thou art my God; be gracious to me, O Lord, for to thee do I cry all the day. Ps. Gladden the soul of thy servant, for to thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul. Tr. RSVCE
