Original text and translations

Passio tua Domine refugium ultimum, singulare remedium.
Deficiente sapientia iustitia non sufficiente sanctitatis succumventibus (i.e. succumbentibus?) meritis.
Venite sitientes ad fontem vivum et saturabimini.
Fons vivus Christus est qui nos tam pie redemit.
Dicite omnes laudem Domino qui rex est eterne gloria.

Your Passion, Lord, is the last refuge, the only remedy.
When wisdom fails, righteousness is not enough for those who fall short in sanctity.
Come, you who thirst, to the fountain of life and you shall be satisfied.
Christ is the fountain of life, who so mercifully redeemed us.
Everyone should praise the Lord, who is the king of eternal glory.
