— Liber Hymnarius
- Bowed down, let us all pray
and let us each cry out,
let us plead before the judge,
let us bend vengeful wrath:
- By our evils, O God, we have offended
remitter of sins, pour forth from above
your indulgence upon us.
- Remember that we are yours,
formed by you, although fallen;
nor, we pray, might you give
the honor of your name to another.
- Mitigate the evil we have done,
increase the good we have desired,
by which we might at length please you
now and always.
- Grant, blessed Trinity,
concede, simple Unity,
that these rewards of moderation
might be fruitful to your children. Amen.
