Latin.png Latin text

O decus celsi genus atque coeli,
nate Titanum Jovis una virtus,
te quis orator mitra, sancte, dignis
  laudibus ornet.

Te Deum toto veneramur orbe,
tu parens nostro populo salutem,
ac pios reges tribuis benigne
  numine sancto.

Maximas ipsi tamen ore grates
reddimus laeti tibi quod dedisti
hoc die nobis pius Assuerum
  Marte potentem.

Hunc pie serva pius ut vocasti
nomen aeternum cupidi rogamus,
gesta quae tantum deceant monarcham
  quo dare cures.
