O desolatorum consolator,
captivorum liberator,
resurrectio mortuorum,
lumen caecorum,
auditus surdorum,
mutorum eloquium,
tutor naufragantium,
impotentium et languidorum sanator,
medicinae refugia errantium,
salus omnium in te sperantium,

Beate Claudi, benigne confessor Dei,
implora apud Deum pro nobis auxilium.
