Sancte dei pretiose
protomartyr Stephane
qui virtute caritatis
circumfultus undique:
Dominum pro inimico
exorasti populo.

Funde preces pro devoto
Tibi nunc collegio:
Ut tuo propitiatus
interventu Dominus,
nos purgatos a peccatis
jungat caeli civibus.

Gloria et honor Deo
usquequo altissimo,
una Patri Filioque
inclito paraclito
cui laus est et potestas
per aeterna saecula.
