Longe mala umbrae terrores
Longe mala umbrae terrores,
Sors amara iniqua sors.
Bella plagae irae furors
Tela et arma aeterna mors.
Recedite, nubes et fulgura,
Et sereno coronate fulgore
Coeli sidera coruscate;
omnes animae super terram et
super astra viventes jubilate.
Aria da capo - Largo
Descende, o coeli vox,
ex alto asperge nos,
Resplende, o vera lux,
es tu secura dux,
