Læta mente canamus omnes, jubilantes, exultantes,
concinentes Dei Matris gaudia.
Gaude sponsa care Dei nam ut clara lux diei solis plenitudine,
sic tu facis orbem vere tuæ pacis resplendere solis plenitudine.
Gaude splendens vas virtutum cujus pendens est ad natum tota cæli curia.
Tu benignam et felicem Jesu dignam Genitricem venerans in gloria.
Gaude nexu voluntatis et amplexu charitatis, quod sis juncta Altissimo,
ut ad votum consequaris quidquid virgo postularis a Jesu dulcissimo.
Gaude virgo Mater Christi, quia sola meruisti, ô virgo piissima,
esse tantæ dignitatis quod sis Sanctæ Trinitatis sessionne proxima.
Gaude Mater miserorum quia Pater supernorum dabit te collentibus,
congruentem his mercedem, et felicem poli sedem regnis in cælestibus.
Gaude virgo Mater pura certa manens et secura, quia tua gaudia non cessabunt,
nec decrescent, sed durabunt et florescent per æterna sæcula.
Alleluia.
