1. O sancte Sebastiane,
semper, vespere et mane,
Horis cunctus et momentis,
Dum adhuc sum sanæ mentis,
Me protege et conserva
Et a me, martyr, enerva
Infirmitatem noxiam
Vocatem epidemiam.

2. Tu de peste hujusmodi
Me defende et custodi
Et omnes amicos meos,
Qui nos confitemur reos
Deo et sanctæ Mariæ
Et tibi, o martyr pie.

3. Tu Mediolanus civis
Hanc pestilentiam, sivis,
Potes facere cessare
Et ad deum impetrare,
Quia a multis est scitum,
Quod de hoc habes meritum.

4. Zoe mutam tu sanasti
Et sanatam restaurasti
Nicostrato ejus viro,
Hoc faciens modo miro
In agone consolatus
Martyres et promitebas
Eis sempiternam vitam
Et martyribus debitam.
Amen.
