Sponso Deus ut prosperet
thori iugalis foedera,
optata donet gaudia,
Ipsum benigne protegat.
Omnes vocati ad nuptias eius
simul nunc supplices vero precamur pectore.
O Christe votis annue.

German.png German translation

Möge Gott dem Bräutgam befördern
das Bündnis des ehelichen Lagers,
möge er die erhofften Freuden gewähren,
möge er ihn gnädig beschützen.
Alle, die zu seiner Vermählung geladen sind,
bitten nun gleichermaßen aus wahrem Herzen.
O Christus, erhöre die Gebete!

Translation by Gerhard Weydt

May God advancefor the bridegroom
the covenant of the conjugal bed,
may he bestow the desired joys,
may he protect him benignly.
All called to his wedding
now equally beg with a true heart.
O Christ, accept our prayers.
