Domine, secundum actum meum noli me judicare,
nihil dignum in conspectu tuo egi,
ideo deprecor majestatem tuam
ut tu Deus deleas iniquitatem meam.

Lord, do not judge me according to my deeds.
I have done nothing worthy in your sight:
therefore I beg you in your majesty,
God, to wash away my sins.

(Responsory 8, Office for the Dead)
