Erravi sicut ovis quae periit.
Pastor bone, pie, Jesu,
quaere servum tuum, reduc me
in viam mantorum tuorum.
Tu enim dixisti:
Visitabi oves meas,
quod perierat requiram,
et quod abjectum erat reducam,
quod confractum allogabo,
et quod infirmum consolidabo.
Aspice vulnera peccatorum meorum,
quorum non est numerus et sana ea.
Tuis me humeris licet indignum excipe
et adhuc ad gregem electorum tuorum;
ibi misericordias Domini
in aeternum cantabo.

I have gone astray like a lost sheep.
Good Shepherd, dear Jesus,
Seek out your servant
me back to the straight path.
You have said:
I will search for my sheep;
I will find what is lost,
what is rejected, I lead back,
what is broken I will heal,
and what is sick I will strengthen.
See the wounds of my sins
who are without number and heal them.
Take me, unworthy, on your shoulders,
and take me back to the herd
of your chosen ones; where I will sing
the kindness of the Lord forever.

Dutch.png Dutch translation

Ik heb gedwaald als een verloren schaap.
Goede Herder, lieve Jezus,
zoek uw dienaar en leid
mij terug naar het rechte pad.
Gij immers hebt gezegd:
Ik zal mijn schaapjes zoeken;
wat verdwaald is zal ik vinden,
wat verworpen is leid ik terug,
wat gebroken is zal ik helen,
en wat ziek is zal ik sterken.
Zie de wonden mijner zonden
die zonder tal zijn en genees hen.
Neem mij, onwaardige, op uw schouders,
en voer mij terug naar de kudde
van uw uitverkorenen; waar ik de goedheid
des Heren tot in eeuwigheid zal bezingen.
