Adstant angelorum chori,
Laudes cantant Creatori,
Regem cernunt in decore,
amant corde, laudant ore,
Tympanizant, citharizant,
Stant in scalis volant alis,
Sonant nolis, fulgent solis
  Coram summa Trinitate;
Slamnt: Sanctus, sanctus, sanctus!
Fugit dolor, cessat planctus
  In superna civitate.

  Concors vox est omnium
  Deum collaudantium
  Fervet amor mentium,
  Clare contuentium
Beatam Trinitatem in una Deitate:
  Quam adorant Seraphim
  Venerantur Cherubim
  Ferventi in amore,
  Ingenti sub honore,
Mirantur nimis throni de tanta majestate.

  O quam praeclara regio
  Et quam decora legio
Ex angelis et hominibus!
  O gloriouso civitas,
  In qua summa tranquillitas;
Lux et pax in cunctis finibus!

Civer hujus civitatis,
Vesti nitent castitatis,
Legem tenent caritatis,
Firmum pactum unitatis,
Non laborant, nil igorant,
Non tentantur, nec vexantur;
Semper sani, semper laeti,
Cunctis bonis sunt repleti!
