Hymnus
1. Te lucis ante términum,
Rerum Creátor póscimus,
Ut solíta cleméntia
Sis præsul ad custódiam.
2. Procul recédant sómnia,
Et nóctium phantásmata,
Hostémque nostrum cómprime,
Ne polluántur córpora.
3. Præsta, Pater omnípotens,
Per Jesum Christum Dóminum,
Qui tecum in perpétuum,
Regnat cum Sancto Spíritu.
Amen.
1. Before the ending of the day,
creator of the world, we pray
that with thy wonted favor thou
wouldst be our guard and keeper now.
2. From all ill dreams defend our eyes,
from nightly fears and fantasies;
tread under foot our ghostly foe,
that no pollution we may know.
3. O Father, that we ask be done,
through Jesus Christ, thine only Son;
who, with the Holy Ghost and thee,
doth live and reign eternally.
Amen.
