Estribillo
Aromática rosa Americana, honor de la iglesia y todo el orbe.
O que flor hermosa, bella, agraciada. Los timbres de tu nombre en voz acorde.
Reina de las flores, ve aquel jardín excelso, es vuestra palma.
Como virgen tan pura y excelente, niña, sube a lograr favores de el omnipotente,
para que le goces, a buscar el lirio entre las flores.

Coplas
Esta es la Joya preciosa del Oriente y del Ocaso.
Hoy se llama Rosa del gasofilacio,
pues empleó su vida en un Dios tan alto.

Fragrantísima Azucena, Nardo eres del Jericó.
Fresca primavera tu hemisferio vio,
Pues tan rozagantes guirnaldas tejió.
