1  Princeps marte potens
Guilielmus pacis et auctor
O pater patriæ
cura salus tuæ.

2  Gloria pontificum Ernestus
pietate patronus
gemma sacerdotum
religionis honos.

3  Magnanimus Princeps
Dux servantissimus æqui
Fernandus patriæ magnus
et ipse pater.

4  Matronarum decus
et speculum virtute
piarum clara ducisa
nitet clara Renata nitet.

5  Virginitatis honos et castæ
mentis imago
moribus effulges
Maximiliana tuis.

6  Luna velut rutilat
virtute Iacobe Marchionissa
aulæ spelndor
et omne decus.

7  Nec minus effulget
Salome virtute corusca
cui nihil aridet
virginitate magis.

8  Princeps egregius virtute
Georgius alma
quem pietas patrum
religioque probant.

9  Vive pater patriæ Guilielme:
O inclite princeps
vivat magnanimum clara
corona ducum.
