O Crux, ave, spes unica,
Quæ sola fuisti digna
Portare talentum mundi.
Dulce lignum, dulces clavos,
Dulcia ferens pondera.
Salve præsentem catervam
In tuis hodie laudibus congregatam.

Hail, O Cross, the only hope,
Which alone was worthy
to carry the price of the world.
Sweet wood, sweet nails,
bearing that sweet burden.
Save that flock assembled here
today to sing thy praises.
