Latin.png Latin text

Peccavi fateor tu pro me, Christe,
Luisti sufficiens anima & corpore supplicium:
Quid tibi pro tanto salvator amore rependam?
Cantabo laudes tempus in omne tuas.

English.png English translation

I confess that I have sinned.
Christ, you atoned for me by suffering agony of mind and body:
how may I repay you, saviour, for so much love?
I shall sing your praises at all times.

Translation by Mick Swithinbank
