1. Iam sol recedit igneus:
Tu lux perennis Unitas,
nostris, beata Trinitas,
infunde lumen cordibus.

2. Te mane laudum carmine,
Te deprecamur vespere;
digneris ut te supplices
laudemus inter caelites.

3. Patri, simulque Filio,
tibique sancte Spiritus,
sicut fuit, sit jugiter
saeclum per omne gloria.

English.png English translation

1. As fades the glowing orb of day,
to Thee, great source of light, we pray;
blest Three in One, to every heart
Thy beams of life and love impart.

2. At early dawn, at close of day,
to Thee our vows we humbly pay;
may we, mid joys that never end,
with Thy bright Saints in homage bend.

3. To God the Father, and the Son,
and Holy Spirit, Three in One,
be endless glory, as before
the world began, so evermore.
