Lyrics: Prosper of Aquitaine

Angelicos cives, et Christi in membra renatos
Non trahat ad veterem carnis origo hominem:
Multa quidem in nostros bona mundus procreat usus,
Et pleno tellus servit opima sinu.
Sed terræ hospitibus cæli super astra vocatis.
Virtutis palma est supernere blanda soli,
Et sic præsentis spatium transcurrere vitaæ,
Ipsa peregrinis ne via sit laqueus:
Nam declinantes pro summis ferre laborem,
Terrenorum avidos infima suscipient.
