In monte Oliveti
oravit Jesus ad Patrem:
Pater, si fieri potest,
transeat a me calix iste:
Spiritus promptus est,
caro autem infirma.
Fiat voluntas tua.

On the Mount of Olives
Jesus prayed to the Father:
Father, if it is possible,
let this cup pass from me:
The spirit is willing,
but the flesh is weak.
Let your will be done.
