Tenebrae facta sunt

Tenebrae factae sunt,
dum crucifixissent Iesum Iudaei:
et circa horam nonam exclamavit Iesus voce magna:
Deus meus, ut quid me dereliquisti?
Et inclinato capite, emisit spiritum.
Exclamans Iesus voce magna, ait:
Pater, in manus tuas commendo spiritum meum.
Et, inclinato capite, emisit spiritum.

Darkness fell while the Jews were crucifying Jesus,
and at about the ninth hour Jesus
called out in a loud voice:
My Lord, why hast Thou deserted me?
Then he inclined his head and his soul
departed from his body.
Jesus called out in a loud voice:
Father, I commend my spirit into Thy hands.
Then he inclined his head.
