Ita decreto aeterno Veneti Maris Urbem Inviolatam discerno, Sic in Asia Holoferni impio tiranno Urbs Virgo gratia Dei semper munita Erit nova Juditha, Et pro popolo suo Pastor orabit, Et fidelis Ozias Veram Bethuliae suae fidem servabit. Eja Virgines Sion Festinate cum gloria In sperata victoria Et pietatis in sinu Cum Psalterio sonanti Applaudite Judithae Triumphanti.
