51. De beata virgine Maria.

1 Fit porta Christi pervia
referta plena gratia,
Transitque rex et permanet
Clausa ut suit per sĉcula.

2 Genus superni numinis
processit aula virginis,
Sponsus, redemptor, conditor,
suĉ gigas ecclesiĉ.

3 Honor matris et gaudium,
immensa spes credentium,
Per atra mortis pocula
resolvit nostra crimina.
