Musica dulci sono caelestia numina cantu,
Mulcere et divos flectere diva potest,
Haec homines sparsos vinclo sociavit amoris,
Primaque contiguae iussit habere domos,
Solatur mestos cadem sua gaudia laetis auget,
et accurrens tempore utroque innat.
Jure igitur divam facimus caeloque locamus,
Ipsa sibi meritis struxit ad astra viam.
