Original text and translations
Grant, O holy trinity,
that thy servant Charles our King
may ever more rejoice in thee;
Give him many happy years on earth,
endue him with all heav’nly graces
and everlastingly reward him through thy mercy;
who dost live and govern all things,
world without end. Amen.
