In pace, in idipsum dormiam et requiescam.
Si dedero somnum oculis meis,
et palpebris meis dormitationem,
dormiam et requiescam.
Gloria Patri, et Filio, et Spiritui Sancto.

English.png English translation

In peace and into the same I shall sleep and rest.

If I give slumber to my eyes

and to my eyelids drowsiness,
I shall sleep and rest.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son,
 and to the Holy Spirit.
