Full text: 

Salve salvator mundi, rex atque creator
Qui deus es et homo, natus de virginis alvo.
Te deus exoro, simplex et pronus adoro
Ut mihi condones et caeli gaudia dones
Nec non defunctis vivis sis quoque cunctis.

English translation: 

Hail Saviour of the world, king and maker, you who are God and man, born from the womb of a virgin. I pray you, God, plain and on my knees I adore you, that you might forgive me and that you might give me the joys of heaven and that you might not only be with the dead but also with all the living.
