Latin.png Latin text

Salva nos, Domine, vigilantes, custodi nos dormientes:
ut vigilemus cum Christo et requiescamus in pace.

Nunc dimittis servum tuum, Domine,
secundum verbum tuum in pace.

Quia viderunt oculi mei salutare tuum.

Quod parasti ante faciem omnium populorum.

Lumen ad revelationem gentium, et gloriam plebis tuae Israel.
Gloria Patri…
