Lyrics: Anon

Cantantibus organis Caecilia virgo in corde suo soli domino decantabat dicens "Fiat domine cor meum et corpus meum immaculatum ut non confundar".

While the organs played, Caecilia the virgin, with the Lord alone in her heart, sang saying "Lord, make my heart and body without stain, that I be not put to shame".
