    Instantis adventum Dei 
Poscamus ardenti prece, 
Festisque munus inclitum 
Prĉoccupemus canticis.

    Ĉterna proles, feminĉ 
Non horret includi sinu: 
Fit ipse servus ut jugo 
Nos servitutis eximat.

    Mansuetus & clemens venít; 
Occurre, festina, Sion: 
Ultro tibi quam porrigit, 
Ne dura pacem respuas.

    Mox nube clarâ fulgurans 
Mundi redibit arbiter, 
Suique membra corporis 
Cœlo triumphator vehet.

    Fœtus tenebrarum, die 
Cedant propinquo crmina: 
Adam reformetur vetus, 
Imago succedat novi.

    Qui liberator advenis, 
Fili, tibi laus maxima 
Cum Patre & almo Spiritu 
In sempiterna secula.

Amen.
