O vos insipientes mortales,
Terrene oblectamenta qui colitis,
Edocimini tandem, ediscite
immensa coelorum liberalitate
bona cuncta donari,

Splendet aurum sed
a sole mutuato lumine
Gemma nitet sed
aurorae depurate lacrimis
Purpurata ridet rosa vicent aura
speciosa saecundata roribus

In flore colores,
odores balsamo
In mele sapores
agnoscite caelitus.

Agnoscite mortales
in hac lacrimarum valle
Terrene cuncta in Felicia
dolorum praecincta spinis
Caduca cuncta marcescere.

Sola coelorum spatia
vera decurunt gaudia
spherarum in vertigine
aeternae stant delitiae.

Fugantur me rores
Pelluntur dolores
in choro stellarum.

Eia, fidelis anima,
Christe tene vestigia
Terrena cuncta despice
