Text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Congratulamini mihi omnes qui diligitis Dominum,

quia cum essem parvula, placui Altissimo:
Et de meis visceribus genui Deum et hominem.

Ego quasi vitis fructificavi suavitatem odoris,
et flores mei fructus honoris et honestatis.

Variant 1
quia quem quaerebam apparuit mihi.
Et dum flerem ad monumentum vidi Dominum meum.

¡Felicitadme todos los que amáis a Dios!,
porque, aunque era insignificante, agradé al Altísimo
y de mis entrañas engendré al Dios y Hombre.
Translation by Alejandro Borrego Pérez

English.png English translation

Rejoice with me, all ye that love the Lord,

for when I was small, I pleased the Most High:
And from my womb I brought forth God and man.

As the vine I have brought forth a sweet odour,
and my flowers are the fruit of honour and truthfulness.

Variant 1
for what I sought appeared to me.
And while I was weeping at the tomb, I saw my Lord.
