En gentes desideratum tempus,
en populi exoptatum festum,
en fideles sancta laeta
en semper gloriosa dies
in qua caelorum cives
congratulantur Francisco
qui terrena contemnes
ad sempiternos ascendit triumphos.

Aria
Nunc flores, nunc rosas per prata caelorum,
per campos astrorum,
odores supernos colligites
aflantes vos animae amantes.
Nostrates Iacinthi
camporumque lilia Francisco
sunt vilia quecumque spirant celestes odores
invisi sunt flores.
Sic ergo cum rosis obortis
caelorum in hortis
dilecto nectamus festantes,
o animae amantes.

Adagio
O beatissime Francisce,
virginitatis lilium
et puritatis flos,
o sanctissime Pater,
vera caeli laetitia,
nostri quae mundi salus exaudi,
exaudi supllices,
audi orantes nostras preces
ad te clamantes.

Aria
Tu es gratiarum fons,
ne infausta premat sors,
tu es ad astra pons,
ne mala ledat mors.
Si tua fulget fax,
tela comburet mars,
nullus insurget trax,
laeta redibit pax.
