Recordare Domine testamenti tui et dic angelo percutienti: Cesset jam manus tua, ut non desoletur terra.
Quiescat Domine jam ira tua a populo tuo, et a Civitate Sancta tua, ut non desoletur terra.

Remember, O Lord, thy testament, and say to the avenging angel: Let thy hand be stayed, that the earth be not made desolate.
Let thine anger now rest from thy people and from thy Holy City, that the earth be not made desolate.
