Crux et virga vigilans
iubar gloriae
victoriae signum
quam salus aeterna
ex cunctis cedris pretiosam elegit.
Alleluia.

O lignum vitae
et crux dignissima
quae decorem et pulchritudinem
de membris Domini suscepisti
quam salus aeterna
ex cunctis cedris pretiosam elegit.
Alleluia.

English.png English translation

Cross and vigilant rod,
glorious radiance,
sign of victory,
such eternal salvation
chosen from all precious cedars.
Alleluia.

O living wood
and most worthy cross,
which grace and beauty
from the limbs of the Lord received,
such eternal salvation
chosen from all precious cedars.
Alleluia.

 Samuel J. Brannon
