Christus vincit! Christus regnat! Christus imperat!
Exaudi, Christe, Ecclesiae Sanctae Dei supra regnorum fines nectenti
animas: Salus perpetua! Redemptor mundi, Tu illam adjuva!

Christ conquers, Christ reigns, Christ rules!
Give ear, O Christ, to the Holy Church of God, which gathers souls beyond all boundaries:
Eternal salvation! Redeemer of the world, come to her assistance!
