Clare sanctorum senatus apostolorum, princeps orbis terrarum, rectorque regnorum
Ecclesiarum mores et vitam moderare,
quae per doctrinam tuam fideles sunt ubique.
Antiochus et Remus concedunt tibi Petre regni solium,
Tyrannidem tu Paule Alexandrinam invasisti Graeciam,
Aethiopes horridos Matthaee agnelli vellere
qui maculas nesciat aliquas vestisti candido.

Thoma Bartholomaee Johannes Philippe Simon
Jacobique pariles Andrea Thaddaee Dei bellatores incliti apostoli Domini.
En vos oriens et occidens, immo teres mundi circulus se patres habere gaudent et exspectant judices.
Et idcirco mundus omnis laudes vobis et honorem sanctis debitum supplex impendit.
