O lux beata Trinitas, O blessed light, the Trinity,
Et principalis unitas, And principal Unity,
Iam sol recedit igneus, Now the fiery sun recedes,
Infunde lumen cordibus. Pour light into our hearts.

Te mane laudum carmine, To you praises in the morning,
Te deprecemur vespere: To you prayers in the evening:
Te nostra supplex gloria To you our humble glory
Per cuncta laudet sæcula. Through all the ages.

Deo Patri sit gloria, To God the Father be glory
Eiusque soli Filio, And to the only Son,
Cum Spiritu paraclito, With the comforting Spirit
Et nunc, et in perpetuum. Now and for ever more.
