Prolongati sunt dies mei in servitio tuo, Domine,
et utraque tibi fortuna servientem probasti me,
ac in sudore vultus mei cognovisti labores et fidelitatem meam.

Inveterata sunt ossa mea, et in dies expectant dolores mortis,
ut rationem reddam villicationis meae ante conspectum Redemptoris,
qui pro nobis passus peccata nostra luit in crucis patibulo.

Sit ergo fas dicere:
Nunc dimitte servum, Domine, secundum verbum tuum in pace,
quia viderunt oculi mei te salvum in regno tuo, et victorum bellorum omnium,
cum felici gloria in qua vives in aeternum ante faciem populorum.
