Lyrics: St. Gregory the Great

Nocte surgentes, vigilemus omnes.
Semper in psalmis, meditemur atque
Viribus totis. Domino canamus
dulciter hymnos.

Ut pio regi pariter canentes
Cum suis sanctis mereamur aulam
Ingredi caeli, simul et beatam
ducere vitam.

Praestet hoc nobis deitas beata
Patris ac nati pariterque Sancti.
Spiritus cuius reboat in omni gloria mundo.

Let us all rise and keep watch at night,
Always singing psalms, and let us reflect
With all our strength. Let us sing sweetly
Hymns unto the Lord.

So that, singing together to the holy king,
So that we, with his saints, may attain his mansion,
The gate of heaven, and also lead
A holy life.

May he grant us this, blessed godhead
Of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
Whose glory resounds throughout the world.
