Latin.png Latin text

Salve Rex Christe
fons misericordiae
vita dulcedo et spes nostra Salve
ad te clamamus exules filii Evae.

Ad te suspiramus gementes et flentes
in lachrymarum valle.

Eia ergo advocate noster
illos tuos misericordes oculos
ad nos converte et regnum et gloriosum,
regnum patris tui nobis post hoc exilium ostende.
O clemens, O pie, O dulcis Jesu.
