Super omnia ligna cedrorum, tu sola excelsior:
In qua mundi salus pependit,
In qua Christus triumphavit,
Et mors mortem superavit in aeternum.

English.png English translation

Only thou exceedest in highness all the wood of Cedar:
Upon which the salvation of the world did hang,
On which Christ did triumph,
And death overcame death forever.
