Jubilet, jubilet tota civitas.
Psallat, psallat nunc organis,
Mater Ecclesia, Deo aeterno
quae Salvatori nostro gloriae
melos laetabunda canat;
quae occasio cor tuum dilectissima Virgo,
gaudio replet tanta,
hilaris et laeta nuntia mihi.

Festum est hodie,
sancti gloriosi qui coram Deo et hominibus,
operatus est.
Quis est iste sanctus
qui pro lege Dei
tam illustri vita et in signis operationibus
usque ad mortem operatus est?
Est sanctus, O Sancte benedicte.
Dignus est certe ut in ejus laudibus
semper versentur fidelium linguae.

Jubilet, jubilet tota civitas.
Psallat, psallat nunc organis,
Mater Ecclesia, Deo aeterno
quae Salvatori nostro gloriae
melos laetabunda canat.
Alleluia.
