Conditor alme siderum,
AEtérna lux credentium,
Christe redémtor ómnium,
Exáudi preces supplicum.

Qui cóndolens interitu
Mortis perîre saeculum,
Saluásti mundum languidum,
Donans reis remédium.

Vergente mundi véipere,
Vti sponsus de thalamo
Egreissus honestissima
Virginis matris cláusula.

Сuius forti potentiae
Genu curuántur ómnia,
Caelestia, terréstrìa,
Nutu faténtur súbdita.

Te deptecâmur agie,
Ventûre iudex saeuli,
Consérua nos in témpore,
Hostis à telo pérsidi.

Laus, honor, virtus, gloria,
Deo Patri,& Filio,
Sancto simul Paraclito,
In saeculôrum saecula. Amen.
