Si qua tibi obtulerint culti nova carmina vates,
 ingenii voveant et monumenta sui,
accipis haec placide legis haec et fronte serena
 ornatusque tuis laudibus author abit
ampla quidem merces laudes meruisse merentes
 maxima laudari principis ore boni.

Cantus firmus (Sexta vox:) Aequabit laudes nulla camena tuas.
