Emendemus in melius quae ignoranter peccavimus: ne subito praeoccupati die mortis quaeramus spatium paenitentiae, et invenire non possimus: Attende, Domine, et miserere, quia peccavimus tibi. Peccavimus cum patribus nostris: iniuste egimus, iniquitatem fecimus. Attende, Domine, et miserere, quia peccavimus tibi.

{Let us amend for the better those things in which we sinned in our ignorance; lest suddenly overtaken by the day of death we should seek for repentance and find it not: Give heed, O Lord, and have mercy, for we have sinned against Thee. We have sinned with our fathers, we have acted unjustly and have done iniquity. Give heed, O Lord, and have mercy, for we have sinned against Thee.}
