Quis dabit pacem populo timenti?
Si quid irati superi per urbes
Jusserint nasci, iacet omnibus par?
Quem parem tellus genuit tonanti?
Planctus immensas resonet per urbes:
Nulla te terris rapiet vetustas.
Tu comes Phoebo comes ibis astris.
Ante nascetur seges in profundo,
Vel fretum dulci resonabit unda.
Ante discedet glacialis urse
et ponto vetito fruetur.

Quam tuas laudes populi quiescant.
Dive pax orbis medice, qui nostros casus
in terris miseratus olim?
Maxima Phoebi soboles, ex alto
redde, Laurenti.
Cita mors ex orbe quam tulit secum.
Miseri precamur
Undique pacem.
Amen.
