Inventae crucis festum recolimus
Cujus praeconium universum
Per orbem micanti lumine fulget.
Crux splendidor cunctis astris mundo,
celebris hominibus multum amabilis.
Sanctior universis.
O crux fidelis.
Quae sola fuisti digna portare talentum mundi.
Crux fidelis, crux splendidior,
Crux amabilis, dulce lignum,
Dulces clavos, dulcia ferrens pondera.
Salva presentem catervam
In tuis hodie laudibus congregatam.
Crux fidelis inter omnes arbor una nobilis.
Nulla sylva talem profert fronde, flore, germine.
Tu sola excelsior super omnia ligna cedrorum.
Alleluja.
