O Virgo Virginum
quomodo fiet istud
quia nec primam similem visa est
nec habere sequentem
filiae Hierusalem
quid me admiramini
divinum est mysterium
hoc quod cernitis.

Ô Vierge des vierges
Comment est-il possible
que tu apparaisses comme nulle autre avant toi
ni comme nulle autre après toi ?
Filles de Jérusalem,
pourquoi me regardez-vous ?
C'est un mystère divin
qu'ici vous contemplez.
