Ne reminiscaris Domine delicta nostra,
vel parentum nostrorum:
neque vindictam sumas de peccatis nostris.
Parce, Domine, populo tuo
quem redemisti praetiosissimo sanguine tuo,
ne irascaris nobis in aeternum.

(Thus Phillips. Lasso have instead:
Parce, Domine, populo tuo
quem praetioso sanguine tuo redemisti,
ne in aeternum irascaris nobis).

From The Litany (Book of Common Prayer)
Remember not, Lord, our offences,
nor the offences of our forefathers;
neither take thou vengeance of our sins:
spare us, good Lord, spare thy people,
whom thou hast redeemed with thy most precious blood,
and be not angry with us for ever.
Spare us, good Lord.
