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 Ten

Quærens me, sedisti lassus:
Redemisti Crucem passus:
Tantus labor non sit cassus.

Faint and weary Thou hast sought me,
On the Cross of suffering bought me;
Shall such grace be vainly bought me ?

Again, the petitioner reminds Jesus that it was to redeem him that Jesus endured His passion : and that He must surely recognize that it would be vain to have done this if there is no such result.
