Lyrics: Prosper of Aquitaine

Esse volens, gaudere optans, scire abdita quærens,
Ut te non teneant intima, summa pete.
Delectare Deo rege, in cælestibus esto,
Et quæ spe sequeris, credita amore tene.
Nulla in te maneant hominis vestigia primi,
Nec formam veteris gestet imago Dei.
Exulta agnoscens te Verbi in carne renatum,
Cuius si pars es, pars tua Christus erit.
Qui, ne damnandi legeres mala gaudia mundi,
Promissum ad regnum se tibi fecit iter.
