‘’’Gratia sola Dei’’’ pie in omnibus omnia adimplet virtute aeterna caelesti et amore creatis
in nostris almus vigeat quoque cordibus ardor
lege sacra statuit cunctisque amor imperet unus
hinc reduces qui nos caelo asserat atque beatos efficiat virtus aequa
almo in amore recumbit.

Legitimo ergo nihil natura invenit amore majus,
connubii unde ferax fit copula fidi
vis sacra amicitiae rata confirmatio amoris
solus amans quod amare iuvat, faeliciter ardet.

Res mira, ignoti quod et illaquentur amore;
emicat accensis per famam mentibus ardor nocte silente magis,
dum mutua flamma per artus errans
alta trahit suspiria pectore ab imo
amplexus taedet longum expectare jugales.
