Conceptio tua, Dei genitrix virgo, gaudium annuntiavit in universo mundo:
Ex te enim ortus est sol justitiae, Christus Deus noster:
Qui solvens maladictionem, dedit benedictionem;
et confundens mortem, donavit vitam sempiternam.

English.png English translation

Your conception, Virgin mother of God, announced joy to the whole world:
For out of thee arose the Sun of justice, Christ our God:
Who, by paying for evil, gave blessing;
and confounding death, gave life everlasting.
