Original text and translations
Gregem tuum, O pastor aeterne,
serva, rege et guberna.
Tu vitae es picerna.
Fac nos tecum pace frui
ut in vita sempiterna
quiescamus supplices cernui.
Ave regum gloriose,
patrem invocare per te nunquam desistimus.
Fac nos tecum sic vivere
ut post mortem lucis verae sortiamur gaudia.
protect, rule and govern your flock.
You are the cupbearer of life.
Let us know peace with you
and, in life everlasting,
lie prostrate before you as supplicants.
Hail, you who are glorious among kings,
we ceaselessly call to the Father invoking your name.
Let us so live with you that after death
we may receive the joy of the true light.
