Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Janitor coeli,
Doctor orbis pariter,
judices saecli,
vera mundi lumina,
per Crucem alter,
alter ense triumphans,
vitae senatum laureati possident.

English.png English translation

Doorkeeper of heaven,
Teacher of the world too,
Both judges of the age,
True light of the world,
The one through his cross,
The other by his triumphant sword,
Possess the crown of life.
