Prima Pars
Salve crux sancta, arbor digna
cujus robur pretiosum
mundi refert talentum,
ut hostis per lignum victor
ligno revinceretur
quoque exortus mortis
primis erat terrigenis
paradiso propulsis.

Secunda Pars
Causa etiam vitae foret cunctis
Christi morte vere vivificatis ,
horrificum tu es semper signum
inimicis crux Sarracenis,
quam mors pavet infernusque tumet,
quae christot suos reconsignat
cui laus sit in aevum.
