Pieta, Signore

Have mercy, Lord,
on me in my remorse!
Lord, have mercy
if my prayer rises to you:
do not chastise me
in your severity.
Less harshly,
always mercifully,
look down
on me, on me.

Never let me
be condemned to hell
in the eternal fire
by your severity.
Almighty God, never let me
be condemned
to the eternal fire
by your severity.
