Al germ'onde s'eterna,
Illustrissimo Ceppo,
Al piu gentile signor ch'oggi si scerna,
Ho da sacrar negletta e debol musa,
Novi parti e quant'unque
Fra le lucenti stelle,
Io port'humil facelle,
Santa è si la sua mente,
Che dovunque
Croce mi si prepari ho fede in lui,
Che mi difenderà mal grad'altrui.
