Quid siletis, curtagetis animae fideles?
Venite ad cantus, ad plausus, ad melos,
ad cantus, ad melos, ad plausus venite.

Sonent symbala ad plausus,
Exurgent organa, sonent omnia, omnia veniant.
Resonent tympana, proferant carmina, et cantus hauriant.

Jam victor cælos habet, Sanctus Franciscus qui semper vicit inferos.
Tribus hostibus subactis sydera triumphis, triumphis coronavit.
Quando vixit, tunc pugnavit,
semper hostes subjugavit,
mundum spregit et subegit,
triumphando debellavit,
quando vixit, tunc pugnavit.

Ridete sydera, triomphate! Plorate Tartara!
Astra tenet, cælos habet, astra tenet, cælos calcat,
vincens que triumphat, et capiti meritum dat diadema Deus.

Psallamus igitur cum cælis victoria
semper dicentes gloria!
