Cerno Dei natum, qui se dimisit ab alto.
Ultima felices referent cum tempora soles.
Hebraea, quem virgo fere [feret?] de stirpe decora,
In terris multum teneris passurus ab annis.
Magnus erit tamen hic divino carmine vates
Virgine matre satus, prudenti pectore verax.

Language: French (Français) after the Latin
Je vois le fils de Dieu, qui est descendu du ciel,
Quand des soleils heureux ramèneront les temps ultimes.
Lui qu'une belle vierge portera d'une racine hébraïque,
Sur terre depuis ses tendres années il souffrira beaucoup.
Pourtant il sera un grand prophète au chant divin,
Né d'une mère vierge, véridique dans la sagesse de son cœur.
