Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

O bone Deus, ne proicias nos
In tempore senectutis
Cum defecerit virtus nostra:
Ne derelinquas nos, Domine
Sancte Deus, sancte fortis
Sancte et misericors Salvator
Amarae morti ne tradas nos.

O good God,
Do not forsake us in our old age,
When our strength will fail;
Do not abandon us, O Lord,
Holy God, holy and strong,
Holy and merciful Saviour,
Do not deliver us to a bitter death.

Translation by James Gibb
