Salvator mundi Domine
qui nos salvasti hodie:
in hac nocte nos protege,
et salva omni tempore.

Adesto nunc propitius,
Et parce supplicantibus:
Tu dele nostra crimina,
Tu tenebras illumina.

Ne mentem somnus opprimat:
nec hostis nos surripiat:
nec ullis caro petimus
commaculetur sordibus.

Te, reformator sensuum,
Votis precamur cordium,
Ut puri castis mentibus
surgamus a cubilibus.

Deo Patri sit gloria,
Eiusque soli Filio,
Cum Spiritu Paracleto
et nunc et in perpetuum.
