:Emendemus in melius quae ignoranter peccavimus;
:ne subito praeoccupati die mortis,
:quaeramus spatium poenitentiae,
:et invenire non possimus.
:Attende, Domine, et miserere;
:quia peccavimus tibi.
:Adjuva nos,
:Deus salutaris noster,
:et propter honorem nominis tui libera nos.
''translation by William Mahrt''
:Let us amend for the better in those things in which we have sinned through ignorance;
:lest suddenly overtaken by the day of death,
:we seek space for repentance,
:and be not able to find it.
:Hearken, O Lord, and have mercy:
:for we have sinned against thee.
:Help us, O God of our salvation,
:and for the honour of thy name deliver us.
(Ps. 78:9; Distribution of Ashes, Ash Wednesday; First Sunday of Lent, Matins Responsory; cf. Esther 13, Joel 2)
