Martini festum celebremus laude perenni,
 qui tulerat populo plurima dona Dei.
Lux rutilans nostra Martinus splendet in aede,
 cujus et usque manet tuta patrocinio.

Plebs igitur concors resonantia carmina mecum
 cantet et appellet vocibus hisce virum:
Sancte pater Martine tuos hic protege natos
 nosque tua Christo conciliato prece.
