Latin.png Latin text

Domine Deus omnipotens,
quaeso respice famulum tuum
hic in carcere tribulationis
multisque periculosis afflitionibus
corporis et animae, propter peccata sua
onustrum et circundatum,
equibus se nullo modo
sine tuo divino praesidio evolvere potest.

Ideo, misericors et clemens Pater,
contrito corde invoco te,
respice angustiam et calamitatem meam
et miserere mei secundam magnam misericordiam tuam
quoniam non aliunde, nisi a te solo,
expecto liberationem.
