Tenebrae factae sunt,

dum crucifixissent Jesum Judaei:

et circa horam nonam exclamavit Jesus voce magna:


Deus meus, ut quid me dereliquisti?

Et inclinato capite, emisit spiritum.


Exclamans Jesus voce magna, ait:

Pater, in manus tuas commendo spiritum meum.


translation

Shadows covered the earth,

when the Jews crucified Jesus,

and toward the ninth hour Jesus let forth a great cry,

saying:


"My God, why hast Thou forsaken me?"

And lowering his head, he gave up the spirit.


Jesus, crying out in a great voice, said:

"Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit."
