O Domine Jhesu Christe, fili Dei vivi,
qui dignatus es pro nobis miseris peccatoribus
nasci; pati, mori voluisti, et resurgere a mortuis:
miserere nobis.

Et sanctissima mater tua sit advocata nostra
dum mortis venerit hora.

Oh Lord Jesus Christ, son of the living God,
who deigned to be born for us miserable sinners,
to suffer, to die and to rise from the dead, have mercy on us.
And may your most holy mother intercede on our behalf
in the hour of death. Amen.
