1. Te lucis ante términum,

Rerum Creátor póscimus,
Creator of the world, we pray
Ut solíta cleméntia
that with your desired favor,
Sis præsul ad custódiam.
you would be our protector and guard.
2. Procul recédant sómnia,
2. From all ill dreams defend our eyes,
Et nóctium phantásmata,
and the phantoms of night,
Hostémque nostrum cómprime,
and restrain our enemy,
Ne polluántur córpora.
that our bodies may not be polluted.
3. Glória tibi Dómine,
3. All glory, Lord, to you we pay,
Qui surrexísti a mórtuis,
Arisen from the dead, today;
Cum Patre et Sancto Spíritu,
With Father and the Spirit be
In sempitérna sǽcula.
All glory yours eternally.
