Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Ego clamabo in coelum, et misereberis mei,
quoniam dixisti: Nolo mortem peccatorem,
sed ut magis convertatur et vivat.
Ergo miserere mei et salva me.

English.png English translation

I cry to heaven, that you will shew mercy,
For as I have said before: I do not wish a death in sin,
but rather that I may be changed and may live.
Therefore, take pity and make me whole.

(trans. Timmi O'Danaos & Donna Ferrentes)
