O dulcissime Domine Iesu Christe,
respicere digneris super me miserum peccatorem oculis misericordie tue
quibus respexisti Petrum in atrio
Mariam Magdalenam in convivio
et dextrum latronem in crucis patibulo
et fac ut cum Petro peccata mea digne fleam
cum Maria Magdalena perfecto amore te diligam
et cum latrone eternaliter te videam
qui vivis et regnas in secula seculorum.
