Modulemini psalmum novum
In insigni die solemnitatis eius.
Quia preceptum est in ecclesia sanctorum,
Tu lex in tabernaculis iustorum.

4. Dicite Virgini, canite martyri[sung text checked 1 time]

Dicite Virgini, canite martyri,
Quam excelsum est nomen tuum,
O beata Cecilia,
Tu gloria domus Dei, tu laetitia,
Quae sponsam Christo paras, respice nos.
Adeste caelites plaudite,
Psallite nobiscum Virgini, pangite melos.
Nobiscum martyri alternate laudes,
Citheris vestras iugite voces,
Citheras nostris sociate cantibus.
Laudate Ceciliam, in voce et organo.
