In flagellis
Potum fellis
Bibisti amarissimum.

Omni genti
Recolenti
Tuae mortis supplicium
Da virtutem
Et salutem
Christe redemptor omnium.

Honor et benedictio
Sit crucifixo filio
Qui suo supplicio
Nos redemit ab inferno.

English translation: 

Amidst scourges thou drankest
the most bitter draught of gall

To all people that worship
the torture of thy death
give virtue and salvation,
Christ redeemer of all.

Honour and blessing
be to the crucified Son,
who by his torture
redeemed us from hell.
