Qualis inter ligna cedrus celsa tollit folia,
Talis inter viros Jesus formæ lucet gloria,
Qualis inter flores ridet dulcirosa purpura
Talis inter omnes nitet pulchrior Dei para
et tu fluxa vecors homo quæris adhuc gaudia.
prosque myrrha et amomo stulte carpis lolia.

Procul hinc profani sæculi deliria,
procul hinc inanis fortis ludibria.

quia Jesus et Maria erunt sola gaudia,
soli valent omnia.
Stellas sui ut fulgore sol excedit luminis,
Et cur adhuc homo vane creaturas deperis,
cur non Jesum et Mariam sequeris, cuncta Jesus
sic decore sui vincit numinis
ut minores noctis faces lunæ cedunt radiis,
sic Maria res sallaces suis vincit gatiis.


Sic a Jesu mundus totus in decore deficit.
Sicut magis rudi gleba auri flamma rutilat,
sic Maria natam Evam, sic Mariam,
am natam Evam prolem forma superat.
Et tu homo ô insane delectaris fordibus
cum tam claris adornare detur unionibus.
