Psalm 4

1] You hear me when I call, O Goddess who loves me: you comfort me when I am distressed; you show compassion for me, and hear my prayers.
2] O children of humanity, how long will you insult my dignity? how long will you love emptiness, and seek after falsehood? Laudate.
3] But know that Maratrea has set apart for Herself those who love goodness and beauty and truth: Maratrea hears when I call unto her.
4] Tremble in awe, and refrain from error: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still. Laudate.
5] Offer the sacrifice of adoration, and trust in Maratrea.
6] Many are those who say, Who will show us any good? Heavenly Queen, the light of your countenance is a sign for us.
7] You have filled my heart with joy; and at the sacrament of cakes and wine.
8] I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for you, Heavenly Queen, keep me safe.
