Original text and translations

La gloria se admire, la tierra se pasme, que el lleno de gracia se ve en un instante, formando placeres, venciendo pesares.
La gloria, la tierra, se admire, se pasme, pues para el asombro que copia admirable, Dios hizo en Maria concepto tan grande que a luz dio sin sombras el mas puro examen.
