Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Mittit ad virginem
non quemvis angelum
sed fortitudinem
suum archangelum
amator hominis

Fortem expediat
pro nobis nuntium
naturae faciat
ut praejudicium
in partu virginis.

Naturam superet
natus Rex gloriae
regnet et imperet
et zyma scoriae
tollat de medio.

Superbientium
terat fastigia
colla sublimium
calcans vi propria
potens in proelio.

Foras ejiciat
mundanum principem
secumque faciat
matrem participem
Patris imperii.


Exi qui mitteris
haec dona dicere
revela veteris
velamen litterae
virtute nuntii.

Accede nuntia
dic Ave cominus
dic plena gratia
dic tecum Dominus
et dic ne timeas.

Virgo suscipias
Dei depositum
in quo perficias
casta propositum
et votum teneas.


Audit et suscipit
puella nuntium
credit et concipit
et parit filium
sed admirabilem.

Consiliarium
humani generis
et Deum fortium
et patrem posteris
in pace stabilem.

Qui nobis tribuat
peccati veniam
reatus deleat
et donet patriam
in arce siderum.
Amen.
