Text and Translation

O pastor animarum
et o prima vox
per quam omnes creati sumus,
nunc tibi, tibi placeat
ut digneris
nos liberare de miseriis
et languoribus nostris.

O shepherd of souls
and o first voice
from which we all sprung,
may it suit you now,
now, to deign
to free us from our wretchedness
and frailty.
