Hora nona dominus
Iesus exspiravit,
Heli clamans spiritum
Patri commendavit.

Latus eius lancea
Miles perforavit,
Terra tunc contremuit
Et sol obscuravit.

English translation: 

At the ninth hour Lord Jesus breathed His last breath, and crying out “Heli” He commended His spirit to the father.

The soldier pierced His side with the lance, the earth trembled and the sun eclipsed.
