O rex.
Nunc dimittis servum tuum,Domine:
secundum verbum tuum in pace.
Quia viderunt oculi mei: salutare tuum.
Quod parasti: ante faciem omnium populorum.

Lumen ad revelationem gentium: et gloriam plebis tuae Israel.
Glora Patri et Filio: et Spiritui Sancto.
Sicut erat in principio et nunc et semper: et in saecula saeculorum.
Amen.

O rex gloriose inter sanctos tuos,
qui semper es laudabilis, et tamen ineffabilis,
tu in nobis es, Domine,
et nomen sanctum tuum invocatum est super nos,
ne derelinquas nos, Deus noster,
ut in die iudicii nos collocare digneris inter sanctos
et electos tuos, rex benedicte.

Rex benedicte, tuos per prospera dirige servos.
Atque colant purae solemnia mistica Paschae.
Ut tergant miseras pia per ieiunia culpas.
Atque colant purae solemnia mistica Paschae.
