Angelorum principatum
Et sanctorum decoratum
Dignitate numerum.

Gaude sponsa cara dei
Nam ut clara lux diei
Solis datur lumine
Sic tu facis orbem vere
Tue pacis resplendere
Lucis plenitudine.

Gaude splendens vas virtutum
Cuius pendens est ad nutum
Tota celi curia.
Te benignam, et felicem Jesu
?
dignam genitricem
Veneratur in gloria.

Gaude nexu voluntatis
Et amplexu caritatis
Juncta sic altissimo
Ut ad votum consequaris
Quicduid virgo postularis
A Jesu dulcissimo.

Gaude mater miserorum
Quia pater seculorum
Dabit te colentibus
Congruentem hic mercedem
Et felicem poli sedem
Regnis in celestibus.

[…] mater pura
Certa manens et secura
Quod hec septem gaudia
Non cessabunt nec decrescent
Sed durabunt et florescent
Per eterna secula.
