Nuptias claras memorate musae
incliti sponsi nitidaeque sponsae
principis magni decorate pompam
quotquot adestis.

Ad fides laetas hilaresque cantus
gestiant vobis generosa corda
sponsa ducatur saliente gressu
dulcis in urbem.

Viribus magnis quatiantur hastae
omne ludorum genus exhibete
ad decus sponsi rutilis in armis
rumpite pila.

Mentibus laetis epulis adeste
et sciant una duo nunc jugati
carne jam primis thalamis favere
numine vestro.
