"Vulnerasti cor meum, soror mea, sponsa."1
Summi regis cor, aveto,
Te saluto corde laeto,
Te complecti me delectat
Et hoc meum cor affectat,
Ut ad te loquar animes.
Per medullam cordis mei,
Peccatoris atque rei,
Tuus amor transferatur,
Quo cor tuum rapiatur
Languens amoris vulnere.
Viva cordis voce clamo,
Dulce cor, te namque amo,
Ad cor meum inclinare,
Ut se possit applicare
Devoto tibi pectore.
"Vulnerasti cor meum, soror mea, sponsa."
