Text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

O Rex gloriae, Domine virtutum,
qui triumphator hodie super omnes coelos ascendisti;
ne derelinquas nos orphanos,
sed mitte promissum Patris in nos,
spiritum veritatis.

English.png English translation

O King of glory, Lord of all power,
Who ascended to heaven on this day triumphant over all;
Do not leave us as orphans,
But send us the Father’s promise,
The spirit of truth.

German.png German translation

O ruhmreicher König, Herr der Tugend,
der du heute im Triumph
alle Himmel erstiegen hast,
lasse uns nicht als Waisen zurück,
sondern sende uns das Versprechen des Vaters,
den Geist der Wahrheit.

Translation by Gerhard Weydt
