Oleum effusum est nomen eius, o nomen quod pietatis gratiam
et potentiam maiestatis sonat
Sanctum olim et terribile nomen eius.
Sed currite gentes effusum est nomen quod quicumquae

et imple omne animal benedictione venite
ad confitendum nomini Domini resonet in voce exultationis
et laetitiae sonus epulantis.
Oleum effusum (...)
Effusum plane quod non solum coelum terrasquae persudit
Sed aspersit et inferos dum ad hoc santum nomen
flectitur omne genu.
O nomen (…)
