Spem in alium nunquam habui praeter in te,
Deus Israel,
Qui irasceris,
Et propitius eris,
Et omnia peccata hominum in tribulatione dimittis.
Domine Deus,
Creator coeli et terrae,
Respice humilitatem nostram.

Mon espoir, je ne l'ai jamais mis en aucun autre que toi,
Dieu d'Israël,
Qui te mets en colère,
Et qui seras bienveillant,
Et qui absous tous les péchés des hommes en tourment.
Seigneur Dieu,
Créateur de ciel et de la terre,
Prends en considération notre humilité.
