Adonay sanctissime Domine Deus omnipotens,
exaudi preces servorum tuorum
et da nobis locutionem pænitentiae,
et ne claudas ora canentium te Domine.

O holiest Adonai, Lord God omnipotent,
hear the prayers of Thy servants
and give us the speech of contrition,
and close not the mouths of those who sing to you, O Lord.
