Derelinquat impius viam suam,

Let the wicked man give up
Language: English  after the Latin 
Let the wicked man give up his path, 
and the man who is unfair his thoughts, 
and let him turn back to the Lord, 
and he will have pity on him, 
because the Lord our God is kind and merciful, 
and pre-eminent over evils.
