Proles parentis optimi
et par parenti maximo,
de luce vera vera lux,
verusque de Deo Deus.

Jam fuscat ignorantiae
caligo crassa pectora,
et nubilis erroribus
mentes tenebrae contegunt.

Exsurge sol purissime,
mundoque da diem suum,
nostramque noctem illuminans
erroris umbram discute.

Dissolve frigus horridum,
arvumque nostri pectoris
caloris lampadis tuae
humore purga noxio.

Ut irrigatus caelitus
roris beati nectare,
et centuplo cum faenore
caeleste semen proferat.
