Full text: 

Qui iacuisti mortuus
In petra rex innocuus
Fac nos in te quiescere
Semperque laudes reddere.

Succurre nobis domine
Quos redemisti sanguine
Et duc nos ad caelestia
Aeternae pacis gaudia.

English translation: 

Who layest dead
in the rock, our innocent king,
make us to rest in thee,
and always render praises.

Come to our aid, O Lord,
whom thou redeemedst with blood,
and lead us to the heavenly
joys of eternal peace.
