Domine, salvum fac regem,
desiderium cordis eius tribue ei,
et voluntate labiorum eius.
Noli fraudare.
Posuisti in capite eius coronam,
et praevenisti eum in benedictionibus,
quoniam in misericordia tua speravit:
da ei victoriam contra hostes suos,
et longitudine dierum reple eum,
semenque eius maneat semper et in seculum seculi.

O Lord, save the King.
Grant him his heart’s desire:
and do not deprive him of the desire of his lips.
Thou hast set a crown upon his head,
and thou hast gone before him with blessings,
as he trusts in thy mercy.
Give him victory over his enemies
and the length of his days,
that his seed may endure
for ever and ever.
