Original Text in Latin:

1 Sonata (instrumental introduction: two violins, viola da gamba, and [basso] continuo)
2 Concerto (SSATB)
Ecce super montes
pedes evangelizantis
et annunciantis pacem
3 Aria (SSATB)
Salve mundi salutare,
salve Jesu care!
Cruci tuae me aptare
vellem vere, tu scis quare,
da mihi tui copiam
4 Aria (S)
Clavos pedum, plagas duras,
et tam graves impressuras
circumplector cum affectu,
tuo pavens in aspectu,
tuorum memor vulnerum
5 Aria (B)
Dulcis Jesu, pie deus,
Ad te clamo licet reus,
praebe mihi te benignum,
ne repellas me indignum
de tuis sanctis pedibus
6 Concerto (SSATB)
Ecce super montes
pedes evangelizantis
et annunciantis pacem
