Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Inveterata sunt ossa mea,
in dies expectant dolores mortis,
ut rationem reddam villicationis meae,
ante conspectum Redemptoris,
qui pro nobis passus
peccata nostra luit in crucis patibulo.

English.png English translation

My bones are grown old;
Day by day they have been awaiting the sorrows of death
that I may give an account of my stewardship
before the eyes of the Redeemer,
who, suffering for us,
atoned for our sins in the torture of the cross.

German.png German translation

Meine Knochen sind mir alt geworden;
Tag für Tag erwarteten sie des Todes Schmerzen,
auf dass ich bezeuge meine Knechtschaft (?)
im Angesichte des Erlösers,
der, für uns leidend,
unsere Sünden in des Kreuzes Marter gebüßt.
