"God himself will set me free, from the hunter's snare. | —God himself will set me free, from the hunter's snare. | From those who would entrap me with lying words | —and from the hunter's snare."

. Ipse liberabit me * De laqueo venantium.  Ipse.
.  Et a verbo maligno.  *De laqueo venatium.  Gloria Patri.  Ipse.

     Responsorium breve, frequently in the Liturgia horarum.  malig* occurs with verb* (so as to constitute "malicious words" (Douay-Rheims)) in the Vulgate of 3 John 10 only.  But the responsorium as a whole comes from Ps 90:3:  "Quoniam ipse liberavit me de laqueo venantium, et a verbo aspero" ("sharp word" (Douay-Rheims), underscoring mine).

"As morning breaks we sing of your mercy, Lord, and night will find us proclaiming your praise."

Mt. Angel Abbey
"Annuntiamus mane misericordiam tuam, Domine, et veritatem tuam per noctem."

We proclaim at dawn your mercy, O Lord, and your truth throughout the night.

     Antiphon 1 for Morning prayer, Second Saturday of Lent.
     Though misericordia and veritas appear very often together in the Vulgate, this antiphon appears to have been been newly composed for the post-Vatican II Liturgia horarum, as I have not been able to get it to appear in CANTUS.
