Morti tuae iam amarae grates ago, Jesu care,
Qui es clemens, pie Deus, fac quod petit tuus reus,
Ut absque te non finiar.
Dum me mori est necesse, noli mihi tunc deesse:
In tremenda mortis hora veni, Jesu, absque mora,
Tuere me et libera.

For your death so bitter I thank you, dear Jesus,
You who are merciful, holy God, grant what your sinner asks,
That I may not meet my end away from you.
When I must die do not be absent:
in the aweful hour of death, come, Jesus, without delay,
Protect me and set me free.
