Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Vigilate et orate,
ut non intretis in tentationem.
Spiritus quidem promptus est,
caro autem infirma.
(Matth. 26:41; Verse of Responsory at Tenebrae, Holy Thursday)

English.png English translation

Watch and pray,
lest you enter into temptation.
The spirit indeed is willing,
but the flesh is weak.
Translation by St Ann choir
