Cântico de Ação de Graças pela nova Constituição Apostólica

God save our present Pope,
Long live our holy Pope
God save the Pope!
Send him victorious,
Happy and glorious,
Long to reign over us,
God save the Pope!

O lord God arise,
Scatter his enemies,
And make them fall!
Confound their knavish tricks,
Confuse their politics,
On you our hopes we fix,
God save the Pope!

Not in this land alone,
But be God's mercies known,
From shore to shore!
Lord make the nations see,
That men should brothers be,
And form one family,
The wide world ov'er

From every latent foe,
From the assasins blow,
God save the Pope!
O'er him thine arm extend,
For Churches' sake defend,
Our Father, prince, and friend,
God save the Pope!
