Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Sancta et immaculata virginitas,
quibus te laudibus efferam nescio,
quia quem caeli capere non poteram tuo gremio contulisti.

Benedicta tu in mulieribus et benedictus fructus ventris tui,
quia quem caeli capere non poterant tuo gremio contulisti.
Quae est ista quae processit sicut sol et formosa tanquam Ierusalem?

Viderunt eam filiae Sion et beatam dixerunt,
et reginae laudaverunt eam,
et sicut dies verni circumdabant eam flores rosarum et lilia convallium.

A few variations: procesit/ascendit &c.
