Prima pars
Domine, quando veneris, judicare terram,
ubi me ascondam a vultu irae tuae?
Quia peccavi nimis in vita mea.

Secunda pars
Commissa mea pavesco,
et ante te erubesco:
dum veneris judicare noli me condemnare,
quia peccavi nimis in vita mea.

R.  O Lord, when thou comest to judge the earth,
whither shall I hide me from the presence of thy wrath? *
For I have sinned grievously in my life.
V.  I begin to fear my misdeeds, and blush before thee:
when thou comest to judgment, condemn me not.
R.  For I have sinned grievously in my life.

[last verse, not set:]
V.  Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon them.
R.  For I have sinned grievously in my life.
