O Lord, Saviour of the World

Salvator mundi domine
qui nos salvasti hodie
in hac nocte nos protege
et salva omni tempore.

Adesto nunc propitius
et parce supplicantibus
tu dele nostra crimina
tu tenebras illumina.

Ne mentem somnus opprimat
nec hostis nos surripiat
nec ullis caro petimus
commaculetur sordibus.

Te reformator sensuum
votis precamur cordium
ut puri castis mentibus
surgamus a cubilibus.

Deo Patri sit gloria
eiusque soli Filio
cum Spiritu Paraclyto
et nunc et in perpetuum. Amen.
