Nocte surgentes vigilemus omnes,
Semper in psalmis meditemur atque
Viribus totis Domino canamus
Dulciter hymnos,

Ut, pio regi pariter canentes,
Cum suis sanctis mereamur aulam
Ingredi cæli, simul et beatam
Ducere vitam.

Præstet hoc nobis Deitas beata
Patris ac Nati, pariterque Sancti
Spiritus, cuius resonat per omnem
Gloria mundum. Amen.
