Ut Phoebi radiis
Ut Phoebi radiis soror obvia sidera luna;
Ut regis Salomon sapientis nomine cunctos;
Ut remi ponthum quaerentum velleris aurum;
Ut remi faber instar habens super aera pennas;
Ut remi fas solvaces traducere merces;
Ut remi fas sola Petri currere prora;
Sic super omne quod est regnas, o Virgo Maria.
Latius in numerum canit id quoque caelica turba
Lasso lege ferens eterna munera mundo:
La sol fa ta mina clara praelustris in umbra,
La sol fa mi ta na de Matre recentior ortus
La sol fa mi re ta quidem na non violata,
La sol fa mi re ut rore ta na Gedeon quo.
Rex, o Christe Jesu, nostri Deus, alte memento.

After reading an article by
Virginia Woods Callahan in the 1971 Josquin symposium report in which she
suggested the 'nonsense' in pars 2 is actually reversed Latin with the 'La' dropping into the following line, David Wyatt suggests the following change to lines 3-6 of the second stanza (with added syllables so that it is translatable):
Animata flos clara praelustris in umbra,
A lana (ul)tima flos de Matre recentior ortus
A lana te rima flos quidem non violata,
A lana te (p)rima flos ut rore Gedeon quo
