O piissime Deus meus, O benignissime pater
o creator caeli et terrae, et universae conditor creaturae,
ne reminiscaris delicta mea,
vel Christianorum delinquentium,
neque vindictam sumas de peccatis nostris.

De derelinquas nos, Domine Deus noster,
ne discedas a nobis,
et ne tradas in manibus quaerentium animas nostras,
sed libera eas de omni angustia, piissime pater.
