Quis numerare quæat bellorum sæva peracta,
dampna referta malis inreparabilibus?
Censeat ipse bonus perpessus talia,
sed qui illa sibi intulerit censeat ipse malus.
Dicat quisquæ quod hæc nobis Deus omnia fecit,
nostris peccatis premia digna febrens.

Da pacem, Domine, in diebus nostris,
quia non est alius qui pugnet pro nobis,
nisi tu, Deus noster.

Fundant precestali, exorent precibus omnes,
quæquæ es in terris natio funde preces ad Dominum,
ut data pax sit duratura per ævum,
ne modico læta tempore deinde gemas,
muneris et tanti ne si sis immemor ipse lore trahat,
quare pacis habena cadat.
Amen.
