Erumpebat Per S. Benedeto
Language: Latin 
Available translation(s): FRE
Erumpebat undique Fama sanctitatis
Beatissimi Patris nostri Benedicti.
Erumpebat undique Fama et augebatur Benedictus 
in die maiori gratia ventura predicendo.
Unde Rex Gothicus Totila ut eludat propheti 
cum Sancti Benedicti Spiritum suum illi spatharium indutum mittit purpura.
A multis servus sociis Dum comitatus simulat se Regem esse Totila 
Hoc benedictus in tuens statim dicit spathario.
Depone fili quod geris, depone purpuram, depone coronam Sceptrum, 
depone ornamentum enim illud Regium tuum non est depone.
Oh turpis, oh demens astutia que vel per iocum,
per iocum fallere sanctorum oculos non potest.
Verum Dum prestat Totila Sancto Benedicto maximum genuflexus obsequium
Regi Idolatre plurima, Benedictus prenuntiat.
Oh pulcra, oh felix devotio que impetrare gratias a sanctis vocibus non dubitat.
