Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Peccavi super numerum arenae maris,
multiplicata sunt peccata mea, Domine, multiplicatae sunt iniquitates meae!
Et non sum dignus videre altitudinem caeli
prae multitudine iniquitatis meae.
quoniam irritavi iram tuam et malum coram te feci.

English.png English translation

For my sins number more than the grains of sand in the sea,
my sins I have multiplied, O Lord, my sins I have multiplied!
I am not worthy to gaze upon heaven above
because of the multitude of my sins.
for I have provoked Thy wrath and done evil in Thy sight.
