Attende Domine, et miserere

Language: Latin

Attende Domine, et miserere, 
quia peccavimus tibi.

Ad te Rex summe, omnium Redemptor,
oculos nostros sublevamus flentes:
exaudi, Christe, supplicantum preces.

Attende Domine, et miserere, 
quia peccavimus tibi.

Dextera Patris, lapis angularis,
via salutis, ianua caelestis,
ablue nostri maculas delicti.

Attende Domine, et miserere, 
quia peccavimus tibi.

Rogamus, Deus, tuam maiestatem,
auribus sacris gemitus exaudi,
crimina nostra placidus indulge.

Attende Domine, et miserere, 
quia peccavimus tibi.

Tibi fatemur crimina admissa,
contrito corde pandimus occulta;
tua, Redemptor, pietas ignoscat.

Attende Domine, et miserere, 
quia peccavimus tibi.

Innocens captus, nec repugnans ductus,
testibus falsis pro impiis damnatus;
quos redemisti, tu conserva, Christe.

Attende Domine, et miserere, 
quia peccavimus tibi.
