Huc me sydereo descendere jussit Olympo
 hic me crudeli vulnere fixit amor.
Langueo nec quisquam nostro succurrit amori
 quem nequeunt dure 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.
