Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Heu mihi, Domine,
quia peccavi nimis
in vita mea:
quid faciam miser?
ubi fugiam nisi ad te,
Deus meus?

Miserere mei,
dum veneris
in novissimo die.

Anima mea
turbata est valde,
sed tu Domine,
succurre ei.

Woe is me, Lord, for I have sinned greatly.
What shall become of me, wretch that I am;
where shall I flee, except to Thee, O Lord?
Have mercy on me when Thou shalt come on the last day.

My soul is greatly troubled but Thou, O Lord, sustainest me.
Have mercy on me when Thou shalt come on the last day.
