Domine non secundum peccata nostra [Lord not according to our sins] (Psalm 103: 10; 79: 8-9) – Jacques Arcadelt

Psalm 103: 10; 79: 8-9 [Latin] –  He hath not dealt with us after our sins: nor rewarded us according to our wickednesses.
O remember not our old sins, but have mercy upon us, and that soon: for we are come to great misery. Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of thy Name: O deliver us, and be merciful unto our sins, for thy Name’s sake.

Original Latin:

Domine, non secundum peccata nostra quae fecimus nos[facias nobis], neque secundum iniquitates nostras retribuas nobis.
Domine, ne memineris iniquitatum nostrarum antiquarum: cito anticipent nos misericordiae tuae. Quia pauperes facti sumus nimis. Adjuva nos, Deus salutaris noster: et propter gloriam nominis tui, Domine, libera nos. Et propitius esto peccatis nostris, propter nomen tuum.
