Omnes superni ordines,*
Quibus dicatur hie dies,
Mille milleni millies,
Vestros audite supplices.

Primum virtutes ignae*
Mox repletae scientiae
Exin juvate nos prece
Sessiones Dominicae.

Dum nos coelestes Domini,
et principes praevalidi,
Potentiaque praediti
Estote nobis placidi.

Hinc dictati virtutibus,*
Vosque tremendi nutibus
Et fulgorosi vultibus,
Christi favete plebibus.

Omnes quos Dei gratia
Ab hac exemit patria,
Bona donate coelestia,
Nostra laxate crimina.

Tu pater assis Abraham,*
Claram regens prospiam,
Cum ipsis necessariam
Nobis precando veniam.

Tandem David hymnidicis
Hinc inde stipatus choris,
Pulcher coronis regiis,
Cunctis succure miseris.

Sacer adesto flagitans*
Coetus futura praedicans,
Nobis Christum concilians,
In coelo jam tripudians,

Omnes, dum carnem induit,
Quos Christus praesens docuit,
Quosque absentes imbuit,
Erigite, qui coruit.

Nostros supreme claviger
Et novae pacis legifer,
Omnisque Christi crucifer:
Aetus mundate pariter.

Nunc omne sacerdotium
Primus ordo Pontificium
Clerum ducendo subditum,
Fletum tergite supplicum.

Nunc posce nobis Genitrix
Omnisque carnis domitrix,
Ut cesset culpa perditrix.
Et plebs solvatur debitrix.

Istud concede Trinitas,
Et indivisa unitas,
Domus regens pacificas
Aetates per interminas. Amen.

Deo Patri sit gloria
eiusquem soli filio:
cum Spiritu paraclito:
et nunc et in perpetuum.
