O virgo generosa, Cæcilia gloriosa,
audi preces nostras et impetratam celitus.
Tu defer indulgentiam quo lætemur triumphantes,
te patronam venerentes.
O virgo felix que iam in cælis regnas cum angelis,
illic tu nostri sic memor esto ut tuo
possimus sociari collegio.
Sancta Cæcilia, ora pro nobis.

O noble virgin, renowned Cecilia,
Hear our prayer and heavenly (pun) entreaty.
You bestow kindness, in which we beneficiaries rejoice,
Worshipping you, our protectress.
O happy virgin, who now reigns in heaven with the angels,
Be mindful of us from there, so that we,
your company of fellows, might be empowered.
Saint Cecilia, plead for us.
