Emendemus in melius
quae ignoranter peccavimus:
ne subito praeoccupati
die mortis quaeramus
spatium paenitentiae,
et invenire non possimus.
Attende Domine, et miserere:
quia peccavimus tibi.
Memento, homo, quia pulvis es
et in pulverem reverteris.

Translation(s):

English.png English translation

Let us change for the better
the sins we have thoughtlessly committed:
lest we in sudden concern
on the day of our death
seek a space for repentance
and cannot find one.
Hear us, Lord, and have mercy on us:
for we have sinned against you.
Remember, man, that you are dust
and to dust you will return.

English.png English translation

Let us amend for the better
where we have sinned through ignorance,
lest, suddenly overtaken by the day of death,
we seek space for repentance,
and be not able to find it.
Hearken, O Lord, and have mercy:
for we have sinned against thee.
Tenor: Remember, man, that thou art dust,
and to dust thou shalt return.
