Latin.png Latin text

Domine Deus omnipotens Pater,
ne permittas nos perire
quia tuae creaturae sumus,
sed concedas nobis spatium paenitendi.

Ut ante diem exitus nostri
per veram paenitentiam
tibi placere valeamus,
et ad caelestem patriam
pervenire valeamus
per Iesum Christum Dominum nostrum.

Lord God, omnipotent Father,
because we are your creation,
do not let us die,
but allow us time for penitence.

So that before the day of our death
through true penitence
we may be able to please you
and we may be able to
come to the heavenly home
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
