Cum vox sanguinis

Language: Latin

Cum vox sanguinis
Ursule et innocentis turbe eius
ante thronum dei sonuit,
antiqua prophetia venit
per radicem Mambre
in vera ostensione trinitatis
et dixit:
Iste sanguis nos tangit,
nunc omnes gaudeamus.
Et postea venit congregatio agni,
per arietem in spinis pendentem,
et dixit:
Laus sit in Ierusalem per ruborem
huius sanguinis.
Deinde venit sacrificium vituli
quod vetus lex ostendebat,
sacrificium laudis circumamicta
varietate,
et que faciem dei Moysi obnubilabat,
dorsum illi ostendens.
Hoc sunt sacerdotes qui per linguas suas
deum ostendunt
et perfecte eum videre non possunt,
et dixerunt: O nobilissima turba,
virgo ista que in terris Ursula vocatur
in summis Columba nominatur,
quia innocentem turbam
ad se collegit.
O Ecclesia, tu es laudabilis
in ista turba:
turba magna, quam
incombustus rubus
quem Moyses viderat significat,
et quam deus in prima radice
plantaverat
in homine quem de limo formaverat,
ut sine commixtione
viri viveret,
cum clarissima voce clamavit
in purissimo auro, thopazio,
et saphiro circumamicta in auro.
Nunc gaudeant omnes celi,
et omnes populi cum illis
ornentur. Amen.
