Vita sanctorum, via, spes salusque,
Christe, largitor probitatis atque
conditor pacis, tibi voce, sensu
pangimus hymnum:

Cuius est virtus manifesta totum
quod pii possunt, quod habent, quod ore,
corde vel factis cupiunt, amoris
igne flagrantes.

Temporum pacem, fidei tenorem,
languidis curam veniamque lapsis,
omnibus præsta pariter beatæ
munera vitæ.

Æqua laus summum celebret Parentem
teque, Salvator, pie rex, per ævum;
Spiritus Sancti resonet per omnem
gloria mundum. Amen.
