sic deificatus.

Adoramus te Christe et benedicimus tibi quia per sanctam crucem tuam redemisti mundum.

English translation: 

He was nailed to the yoke of the cross and sentenced with the thieves he hangs. Thirsty for the tortures, filled with bitter poison, the lamb washed away the crime made divine in such a way.

We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you, because through your Holy Cross you redeemed the world.
