Domine, non secundum
Language: Latin 
Available translation(s): ENG
Domine, non secundum peccata nostra quae fecimus nos, 
neque secundum iniquitates nostras retribuas nobis. 

Domine, ne memineris iniquitatum nostrarum antiquarum : 
cito anticipent nos misericordiae tuae.

Quia pauperes facti sumus nimis.

Adiuva nos, Deus salutaris noster : 
et propter gloriam nominis tui, Domine, libera nos. 
Et propitius esto peccatis nostris propter nomen tuum.

Lord, not according
Language: English  after the Latin 
Lord, repay us not according to our sins, 
which we have committed, nor according to our wickedness.

Lord, do not remember our old wickedness: 
let your mercies quickly overtake us.

Because we have become too poor.

Help us, God our saviour: 
and for the glory of your name, Lord, free us. 
And be well-disposed to our sins for your name's sake.
