Unde revertimini, pax, relligioque sorores
  visimus Isareo regna opulenta situ
Quae fortuna soli vel quae reverentia legis
  explicat Annae fides, paxque togata iubar
O soror, Albertus nobis summa otia fecit
  liber ab haeresibus quo duce Boia manet
Quo duce relligio Boiae moderatur habenas
  ingenium Pallas, pax animosque regit
An sua coelitibus celebrantur cantica divis
  Albertus superos relligione colit
Prosperitas, doctrina, salus, vita, otia Martis
  cum pietate fides Bavara regna tenent.
O felix genus hoc hominum o felicia regna
  quae triade hac gaudent: Pallade, pace, fide
Albertus felicior ast quo principe regnant
  relligio, pietas, intemerata fides.
