Text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Nesciens mater virgo virum
peperit sine dolore
salvatorem saeculorum.
Ipsum regem angelorum
sola virgo lactabat,
ubere de caelo pleno.

(some sources have ubera de coelo plena)

English.png English translation

Knowing no man, the Virgin mother
bore, without pain,
the Saviour of the world.
Him, the king of angels,
only the Virgin suckled,
breasts filled by heaven.

Spanish.png Spanish translation

La Virgen Madre, sin conocer varón,
dio a luz sin dolor
al Salvador del mundo.
Al mismo Rey de los ángeles
solo la Virgen amamantaba
con sus pechos llenos de cielo.
Translation by Alejandro Borrego Pérez
