Expándi manus meas ad te

Expándi manus meas ad te,*
ánima mea sicut terra sine aqua tibi.
I have stretched out my hands to you,*
my soul is like a land without water for you.


The word manus is a fourth declension feminine noun. It may appear to be a second declension noun to the unobservant reader! Meas goes with manus giving us a smooth feminine plural accusative my hands.
