Deus, qui manus tuas, pedes tuos et totum corpus tuum
pro nobis peccatoribus in patibulo crucis posuisti:
da nobis hodie et quotidie usum poenitentiae, abstinentiae,
patientiae, castitatis, humilitatis et obedientiae.
Salva nos, Iesu Christe, et miserere nobis.

God, whose hands, feet, and whole body
for us sinners were placed on the gallows of the cross,
grant us, today and every day, a modicum of penitence, of abstinence,
of chastity, humility and obedience.
Save us, O Jesus Christ, and have mercy on us.
