Peccantem me quotidie

Language: Latin

Peccantem me quotidie,

Quia in inferno 
nulla est redemptio,
miserere, miserere mei, 
Deus, et salva me.

Der ich täglich schuldig werde

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Latin

Der ich täglich schuldig werde
und nicht bereue,
darob bestürzt mich die Furcht vor dem Tod:
Denn in der Hölle 
gibt es keine Erlösung.
Erbarm dich meiner, 
Gott, und rette mich.
