Full text: 

Qui velatus facie fuisti
Et penurias substinuisti,
Sol iustitiae.
Flexis illusus genibus,
Caesus quoque verberibus

Te petimus attentius:
Esto nobis propitius
Et per tuam clementiam
Perducas nos ad gloriam.

English translation: 

Thou whose countenance was veiled and who didst endure poverty, Sun of righteousness, mocked while you were on your knees and smitten with blows besides.

We beg thee intensely, be favourable unto us, and by thy clemency lead us through to glory.
