Perfunde celi rore
Benedic quam nuptias,
Reginam sancto more:
Ne des indutias,
Herculem servare
Per flamen spiritus.
Per terram atque mare,
Sit sibi servitus.

A Virgine qui natus
Et verbum verum es,
Tu adorandus datus,
O quam miranda res,
Matrem tu creares,
Que generaret te:
In Heva commendares
Hec genuit sive ve,
Nunc tu sancte infans,
Aures aperi
Sponse que est constans;
Da gratiam Herculi,
Sponse benignitatem:
Ut ambo timeant te:
Da meram dignitatem,
Confirma hos in spe.
