Proverbs viii., 27.—" When he prepared the heavens, I was there."

1. Pręsepe poni pertulit
Qui lucis Auctor extitit :
Cum Patre cœlos condidit ;
Sub matre pannos induit.

2. Legem dedit qui sęculo,
Cujus decem pręcepta sunt,
Dignando factus est homo
Sub legis esse vinculo.

3. Gloria Tibi, Domine,
Qui natus es de Virgine,
Cum Patre et Sancto Spiritu,
In sempiterna sęcula. Amen.
