by Giacomo Cassetti (1682 - 1757)

O quam vaga, venusta, o quam decora
Language: Latin 
O quam vaga, venusta, o quam decora, 
Ospes nostrae victoriae unica, et vera. 
Tentoria vultu tuo ducis honora 
Et cuncta ab Holoferne attende, et spera. 

Quem vides prope, aspectu 
Terribili, et suavi, 
Quem quaeris, ipse hic est: amore, et fide, 
In ipso pulcra Sion spera, et confide.
