O bone, O dulcis, O benigne Jesu,
te deprecor per illum tuum sanguinem pretiosum,
quem pro nobis miseris
effundere dignatus es in ara crucis:
ut abjicias omnes iniquitates meas.

English.png English translation

O good, O sweet, O kindly Jesus,
I beseech thee, by thy most precious blood,
Which for us wretched ones
Thou didst deign to pour out the altar of the cross:
to blot out all my sins.

Translation by James Gibb
