Original text and translations
Adoremus regem magnum dominum qui in sanctis suis semper est mirabilis. Dum inventum esset sacratissimi beati Stephani corpus statim terremotus factus est magnus atque omnes qui aderant odor perfudit suavissimus.
Let us worship the great lord and king who is ever wonderful among his saints. When the body of the most holy Stephen was found, at once there was a great earthquake and everyone present smelled a most gorgeous scent.
