Christe totius dominator orbis
virginis gaudens utero pudice
signa divino faciens triumpho
rector in orbe
Christe Judeam patiens catervam
et crucis mortem tolerans prophanam,
ut tibi totum pietate mundum conciliares.

Christe qui victa nece suscitasti carneam formam pietate sumptam,
vulneris plenam deitate magnam virgine natam.
Christe regnator Deus et creator
caelicos lectis referans triumphos
nube conclusus penitens volasti patris ad arces.
Christe felicem mihi da salutem
et meam cernas lachrymam profusam
cerne pulmonis gemitus gementis pectora cerne.
