Latin.png Latin text

Sidus ex claro veniens Olympo
Virgo quod nobis peperit sacrata,
orbis illustrat spatium rotundi
 nobile lumen.

Protulit nobis mulier salutem
Filium summi Patris ediditque
et Deum mater genuit pudica
 virgo manensque.


Qui maris, terrae, hominum ac deorum
temperat laxatque datas habenas
quo nihil majus generatur ipso
 nascitur orbi.

Illius laudes pueri sonabunt,
carminum nostrum moduli suaves,
vocibus laetis feriamus astra
 rosida caeli.
