Domine, quando veneris judicare terram,
ubi me abscondam a vultu irae tuae?
Quia peccavi nimis in vita mea.
Commissa mea pavesco
Et ante te erubesco,
Dum veneris judicare,
Noli me condemnare,
Quia peccavi nimis in vita mea.


English.png English translation

O Lord, when thou comest to judge the world,
where shall I hide myself from the face of thy wrath?
For I have sinned exceedingly in my life.
I dread my sins, I blush before thee:
When thou comest to judge,
do not condemn me,
For I have sinned exceedingly in my life.
