Τριφαὲς τρισήλιον ἄγηρον φάος,
σέλας ἀγλαόφωτον τρισυποστάτου
ἑνάδος, οὐσίη τε τῆς μοναρχίας,
ἄφθεγχτον ἀτέκμαρτον μερόπων νόῳ
τρισὶ τοῖς ἀτόμοισγε εἴτ᾽ οὖν προσώποις,
ἡ τὰ ὅλα δήσασα ἐκ τοῦ μὴ ὄντος
παναλκῇ δυνάμει φορέων, ὡς θέλεις,
δερκομένοις ἅπασι, καὶ ἀθεάτοις·
αὐτὸς οὖν τρισάναρχε Θεὲ τῶν θεῶν,
κύριε τῶν κυρίων, ἄναξ ἀνάκτων,
ταῖς λιτῇσιν εὐχαῖς δεσποίνης ἀπειράνδρου
μητρὸς τοῦ ἑνὸς τῆς σῆς ὑπερουσίου
υἱοῦ καὶ λόγου γεννηθέντος ἀφθόρως,
καὶ πάντων καθεξῆς ἀπ᾽ αἰῶνος ἁγίων,
ῥῦσαι ταύτην τὴν ποίμνην ἐκ πάσης τρικυμίας,
καὶ παντοίων πημάτων δυσμενοῦς τοῦ Βελίαρ,
καὶ ἀξίωσον στάσεως δεξιτερινῆς ὁμοῦ
τὸν ποιμένα τῇ ποίμνῃ σὺν τοῖς ἐντευξομένοις,
ἅμα τε τῷ γράψαντι καὶ τῷ τάξαντι ταῦτα.
Πᾶσιν ἀναπτύσσουσι τὴν θείαν πτυκτὴν ταύτην,
ἐκλιπαρεῖται, λιτάζεσθ᾽ ὑπὲρ τούτου
τοῦ προτρεψαμένου τε καὶ ταῦτα γραψαμένου,
καὶ ἀνέσεως τυχεῖν ἐν τῇ φοβερᾷ ἡμέρᾳ.

Translation(s) O lux, trinaluce trinosole coruscans ingiter,
Splendor lucidissime ter subsistentis
Unitatis, & substantia Monarchiae,
Ineffabili & incomprehensibili nobis modo
In tribus subsistens individuis personis,
Quae cuncta ex nihilo producta
Omnipotenti tua virtute, ut vis,
Rebus visibilibus, & invisibilibus colligasti:
Tu, inquam, principio carens, Deus Deorum,
Domine Dominorum, Rex Regum,
Per preces supplices Dominae, virum non expertae,
Matris tui, unius supersubstantialis
Filii, & Verbi incorrupte geniti,
Et omnium deinceps a seculo sanctorum,
Libera hunc gregem ab omni tribulatione,
Et ab omnibus insidiis infesti Beltal,
Et velis una simul locare in statione dextera
Pastorem, & gregem cum electis,
Necnon eum, qui haec scripsit, & digessit.
At vos omnes, qui hunc sacrum librum evolvistis,
Orate, enixe vos deprecor, tam pro illo,
Qui fuit auctor, quam pro eo, qui scripsit ista,
Ut veniam consequantur in tremendo die.
