Source (Hebrew)Translation (English)
אָדָם שֶׁהוּא דָּר בַּכְּפָר וְאֵין עִמּוֹ עֲשָׂרָה לוֹמַר דָּבָר שֶׁבִּקְדֻשָּׁה אוֹ בִּמְּקוֹם קְּהִלָּה וְאִחֵר לָבֹא עַד אֲשֶׁר אָמְרוּ כְּבָר יְהֵא שְׁמֵי׳ רַבָּא יֹאמַר
A person who lives in a village without a minyan or who arrived late after they had already said “may God’s great Name…” should instead say:
וְעַתָּה יִגְדַּל נָא כֹּחַ אֲדֹנָי
כַּאֲשֶׁר דִבַּרְתָּ לֵאמֹר׃ (במדבר יד:יז).
Therefore, I pray, let my Lord’s forbearance be great,
as you have declared, saying:[1] Numbers 14:17. 
וְהִתְגַּדִּלְתִּי וְהִתְקַדִּשְׁתִּי
וְנוֹדַעְתִּי לְעֵינֵי גּוֹיִם רַבִּים
וְיָדְעוּ כִּי אֲנִי ה׳׃ (יחזקאל לח:כג).
Thus will I manifest My greatness and My holiness,
and make Myself known in the sight of many nations.
And they shall know that I am YHVH.[2] Ezekiel 38:23. 
יְהִי שֵׁם ה׳ מְּבֹרָךְ מֵעַתָּה וְעַד עוֹלָם׃ (תהלים קיג:ב).
Let the name YHVH be blessed now and forever.[3] Psalms 113:2. 

This mourners ḳaddish in the event there is no minyan is found in the Sefer Ḥasidim of Rabbi Yehudah ben Shmuel of Regensburg (ca. 12th-13 c.).
