Media vita in morte sumus; In the midst of life we are in death:
quem quaerimus adjutorem, of whom may we seek for succour,
nisi te Domine, but of thee, O Lord,
qui pro peccatis nostris (juste irasceris?) who for our sins art (justly displeased?)
Sancte Deus, Yet, O Lord God most holy,
Sancte fortis, O Lord most mighty,
Sancte et misericors Salvator, O holy and most merciful Saviour,
amarae morti ne tradas nos. deliver us not into the bitter pains of eternal death.
