I do not always prevail over my own nature, but what can I do ?
And I suffer for my actions, but what can I do ?
I verily believe that Thou wilt generously pardon me
On account of my shame that thou hast seen what I have done—but what can I do ?

 

Bodl 109

I do not always prevail over my nature, — but what can I do ?
and I suffer for my actions, — but what can I do ?
I verily believe that Thou wilt generously pardon me
on account of my shame that Thou hast seen what I have done, — but what can I do?

 

Nic 282

Je suis en guerre continuelle avec mes passions, mais que faire?Le souvenir de mes actes me cause mille douleurs, mais que faire? J'admets que dans ta clémence tu me pardonnes mes fautes, mais la honte de savoir que tu sais ce que j'ai fait, cette honte-là reste, que faire?

P 543

At war with myself and my passions aye-what shall I do?
For my actions o'ertaken with grief and dismay-what shall I do?
Grant e'en that my sins, of Thy mercy, to me Thou forgive,
Of my shame that Thou saw'st my transgressions, say-what shall I do?

Th 366

I fight with my desires continually. What shall I do?
And my own deeds bring constant shame to me. What shall I do?
Suppose that of Thy kindness Thou forgive?
For this my shame Thou did'st my actions see, What shall I do?

Wh 322

Against my lusts I ever war, in vain,
I think on my ill deeds with shame and pain;
I trust Thou wilt assoil me of my sins,
But even so, my shame must still remain.
