Sanctum est verum lumens
et praeteriens mirabilis
mutuit lumen eorum qui in sustineret in medio ardore certaminis
a Christo sunt possidebit et habere domi splendor
exultant cum factitia quam semper.

Holy is the True Light,
and passing wonderful,
lending radiance to them that endured in the heat of the conflict,
from Christ they inherit a home of unfading splendour,
wherein they rejoice with gladness evermore.
