Tomás Luis de Victoria

O Domine Jesu Christe:
adoro te in cruce vulneratum,
felle et aceto potatum:
deprecor te, ut tua vulnera,
morsque tua sit vita mea.

O Lord Jesus Christ,
I adore (worship) You,
wounded on the cross,
drinking gall and vinegar;
I beseech You that Your wounds
and Your death may be my life.

—from the antiphon for the
Finding of the Holy Cross.
