Stirps Jésse vírgam prodúxit,
vírgaque flórem.
Et súper hunc flórem
requiéscit spíritus álmus.

Vírgo Déi génitrix
vírga est;
flos, fílius éius.
Et súper hunc flórem
requiéscit spíritus álmus.

The stem of Jesse produced a shoot,
and the shoot, a flower.
And upon this flower
rested a caring spirit.

The virgin bearer of God
is the shoot;
the flower, her son.
And upon this flower
rested a caring spirit.
