HYMNUS

1 Verbum salútis ómnium,
Patris ab ore pródiens,
Virgo beáta, súscipe
casto, María, víscere.

2 Te nunc illústrat cælitus
umbra fecúndi Spíritus,
gestes ut Christum Dóminum,
æquálem Patri Fílium.

3 Hæc est sacráti iánua
templi seráta iúgiter,
soli suprémo Príncipi
pandens beáta límina.

4 Olim promíssus vátibus,
natus ante lucíferum,
quem Gábriel annúntiat,
terris descéndit Dóminus.

5 Læténtur simul ángeli,
omnes exsúltent pópuli:
excélsus venit húmilis
salváre quod períerat.

6 Sit, Christe, rex piíssime,
tibi Patríque glória
cum Spíritu Paráclito,
in sempitérna sæcula. Amen.
