Attende Domine is a Lenten hymn of supplication. This hymn is primarily used during the Lenten season, but is also good for any use.

Latin:
Attende Domine, et miserere, quia peccavimus tibi.
Ad te Rex summe,omnium Redemptor,
 oculos nostros 
sublevamus flentes: 
exaudi, Christe,
 supplicantum preces.

Attende Domine, et miserere, quia peccavimus tibi.
Dextera Patris, 
lapis angularis, 
via salutis, 
ianua caelestis,
 ablue nostri maculas delicti.

Attende Domine, et miserere, quia peccavimus tibi.
Rogamus, Deus, 
tuam maiestatem:
 auribus sacris
 gemitus exaudi:
 crimina nostra
 placidus indulge.

Attende Domine, et miserere, quia peccavimus tibi.
Tibi fatemur 
crimina admissa:
 contrito corde 
pandimus occulta:
 tua, Redemptor,
pietas ignoscat.

Attende Domine, et miserere, quia peccavimus tibi.
Innocens captus 
nec repugnans ductus;
 testibus falsis 
pro impiis damnatus
 quos redemisti, 
tu conserva, Christe.

Attende Domine, et miserere, quia peccavimus tibi.

English:
Hear us, O Lord, and have mercy, because we have sinned against Thee.
To Thee, highest King, 
Redeemer of all,
 do we lift up our eyes 
in weeping: 
Hear, O Christ, the prayers 
of your servants.

Hear us, O Lord, and have mercy, because we have sinned against Thee.
Right hand of the Father, 
corner-stone,
way of salvation, 
gate of heaven, 
wash away our
stains of sin.

Hear us, O Lord, and have mercy, because we have sinned against Thee.
We beseech Thee, God, 
in Thy great majesty: 
Hear our groans 
with Thy holy ears: 
calmly forgive
our crimes.

Hear us, O Lord, and have mercy, because we have sinned against Thee.
To Thee we confess
our sins admitted 
with a contrite heart 
We reveal the things hidden:
 By Thy kindness, O Redeemer,
overlook them.

Hear us, O Lord, and have mercy, because we have sinned against Thee.
The Innocent, seized,
not refusing to be led; 
condemned by false witnesses 
because of impious men 
O Christ, keep safe those
whom Thou hast redeemed.

Hear us, O Lord, and have mercy, because we have sinned against Thee.
