(see textpage Sanctorum meritis for even verses)
 
1. Sanctorum meritis inclyta gaudia
pangamus, socii, gestaque fortia:
Num gliscit animus promere cantibus
victorum genus optimum.
 
3. Hi pro te furias atque ferocia
calcarunt hominum saevaque verbera,
cessit his lacerans fortiter ungula
nec carpsit penetralia.
 
5. Quae vox, quae poterit lingua retexere,
quae tu martyribus munera praeparas?
rubri nam fluido sanguine laureis
ditantur bene fulgidis.
