Esto mihi in Deum protectorem

The Benedictine Nuns of Notre-Dame de l'Annonciation, Le Barroux
Gregorian chant notation from the Liber Usualis (1961), p. 511. 

Be Thou unto me a Goda protector
and a place of refuge– to save me: 
for Thou art my strength and my refuge: 
and for Thy name’s sake Thou wilt lead me, and nourish me.
Ps. In Thee, O Lord, have I hoped, let me never be confounded: 
deliver me in Thy justice, and save me. 

Jesus said to him: Receive thy sight. Thy faith hath made thee whole.
