This, from VOCES8 and Rachel Podger:

As we begin the season of Lent, we reflect on passages from psalms 79 and 103. Set to music by James MacMillan, we have relished performing ‘Domine non secundum peccata nostra’ with Rachel Podger as part of our ‘A Guardian Angel’ collaboration, including in this performance in Brecon Cathedral.

TEXT
Domine, non secundum peccata nostra, quae fecimus nos: neque secundum iniquitates nostras retribuas nobis. Domine, ne memineris iniquitatum nostrarum antiquarum: cito anticipent nos misericordiae tuae, quia pauperes facti sumus nimis.
Adjuva nos, Deus salutaris noster: et propter gloria nominis tui, Domine, libera nos: et propitius esto peccatis nostris, propter nomen tuum.

TRANSLATION
O Lord, repay us not according to the sins we have committed, nor according to our iniquities. O Lord, remember not out former iniquities: let Thy mercies speedily prevent us, for we are become exceeding poor.
Help us, O God, our Saviour: and the glory of Thy Name,
O Lord, deliver us: and forgive our sins for Thy Name’s sake.
