Latin contrafactum by Aquilino Coppini

Latin.png Latin text

Te, Jesu Christe, liberator meus,
reverenter adoro.
Vulneratus es, mihi ut des vitam
Clavi tibi foderunt pedes,
manus amabiles, feriere te
cuspide saeva teterrimi ministri,
impie ausi sunt, ferire pectus.
Sic mira pietate redimisti me, Christe,
Tua morte. Tu vero vulnera
cor meum durum telo amoris tui.

English.png English translation

Jesus Christ, my redeemer,
I worship you with reverence.
You were wounded to give me life,
The nails pierced your feet
And your dear hands; the most loathsome minions
Had the audacity to strike you with a cruel spear,
To wound your breast.
Thus in your wondrous mercy you redeemed me, Christ,
By your death. Pierce my hard heart
With the true spear of your love.

Translation by Mick Swithinbank
