Miser ubi parebo qui omnes annos meos
semper in peccatis duxi nec recognovi Dominum meum
qui legem tulit quod si quis peccaverit,
quod si quis peccaverit morte moriatur.

Tremebundus ego: quid faciam cum non habeat fragilitas mea
unde satisfacere possit?
In hoc confido quod maior est misericordia tua
quam sit iniquitas nostra nec vis mortem peccatoris
sed ut magis convertatur et vivat.

Ergo Domine averte iram tuam et miserere nobis.
