LIBERA ME, Domine, Iesu Christe, ab omnibus iniquitatis meis et universis malis,
fac me tuis semper inhærere mandatis et a te numquam separari permittas. Amen.

Dies Iræ – Day Nine

Recordare, Iesu pie,
Quod sum causa tuæ viæ:
Ne me perdas illa die.

Think – kind Jesu ! – my salvation
Caused Thy wondrous Incarnation;
Leave me not to reprobation.

In this verse the pray-er seeks Jesus’ recognition that it was the need for our salvation which caused Him to be born in the first place; and it implies that His recognition of that would surely not lead to us suffering ultimate reprobation.
