Impetum inimicorum ne timueritis.
Memores estote quomodo salvi facti sunt patres nostri.
Memento te mirabilium eius quae fecit Pharaoni et exercitui eius in mari rubro.
Et nunc clamemus in caelum et miserebitur nostri Deus noster.

Fear not the onslaught of thine enemies.
Remember how our fathers were saved.
Remember the miracle he performed against Pharaoh and his armies in the Red Sea.
And now let us shout to heaven, and may our Lord God be merciful.
