Que els àngels t'acompanyin al paradís
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the Latin 
Que els àngels t'acompanyin al paradís;
que, a la teva arribada, et rebin els màrtirs,
i et facin entrar a la ciutat santa
de Jerusalem. Que el cor dels àngels t'aculli,
i tinguis amb Llàtzer, el pobre, un repòs etern.1
