Huc me sydereo descendere jussit Olimpo
hic me crudeli vulnere fixit amor.
Langueo nec quisquam nostro succurrit amori
quem nequeunt dura frangere jura crucis.

Pungentem capiti Dominum gestare coronam
fortis amor docuit verbera tanta pati.
Felle sitim magni regis satiavit amaro
pectus ut hauriret lancea fecit amor.

De me solus amor potuit perferre triumphum
ille pedes clavis fixit et ille manus.
Si cupis ergo animi mihi signa rependere grati
dilige pro tantis sat mihi solus amor.
