Magnum haereditatis mysterium:
templum Dei factus est uterus nesciens virum:
non est pollutus ex ea carnem assumens:
omnes gentes venient dicentes:
Gloria tibi Domine.

English.png English translation

O great mystery of heritage:
The womb that never knew man is made the temple of God:
He who takes flesh from her is not defiled:
All nations shall come, saying,
"Glory be to thee, O Lord."
