Gaudete caelicolae omnes;
et plaudite manibus Christum quae natum
in eum colite cujus matrem semper virginem,
ante partum, in partum, et post partum intactam
remanentem supplicantes nobis singulis
in dies delinquentibus gratiam
praebeat praesenti in saeculo;
ut post hujus vitae exitum plena
cum eisdem vita perfruamur aeterna.
