Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Cum erubuerint infelices
in progenie sua,
procedentes in peregrinatione casus,
tunc tu clamas clara voce,
hoc modo homines elevans
de isto malicioso

English.png English translation

When those unhappy ones
blushed with shame at their offspring,
going forth into the Fall by roaming about,
then you call in a clear voice,
raising up humans in this way
from that vicious

Translation by Hugh McElroy
