Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Defensor noster, adspice,
Insidiantes reprime,
Guberna tuos famulos
Quos sanguine mercatus es.

English.png English translation

Our defender, behold us,
restrain the treacherous ones,
govern your servants,
whom you bought by blood.

German.png German translation

Du unser Verteidiger, blicke her,
Dränge die Auflauernden zurück,
Lenke deine Diener,
Die du mit Blut erkauft hast.
