Tu, Déus nóster, suávis et vérus es,
Et in misericórdia dispónens ómnia.
Etenim si peccavérimus, túi súmUs,
Sciéntes magnitúdinem túam,
Et si non peccavérimus,
Scímus quóniam ápud te
súmus computáti.

Nósse énim te,
consummáta justítia est;
Et scíre justítiam
et virtútem túam,
rádix est immortalitátis.

You, our God, are gracious and true,
and in mercy arranging all things.
For if we sin, we are yours,
knowing your greatness,
and if we do not sin,
we know that we are
counted with you.

For to begin to know you
is complete justice;
and to know justice
and your power
is the root of immortality.
