triplum
 Magnanime gentes laudes patiare, mi Berna,
 Augeat usque suum nuntia fama decus!
 Vox Pegasea locum mundi procurrat ad omnem:
 Cognoscant Daci, Teucria, Parthus, Arabs,
 Quam fortes animos,
 Quam ferrea pectora quamque
 Egregios sensus,
 Optima Berna, paris!
 Juribus annorum cujus res publica florens
 Consilio veterum multiplicata manet.
 Cultrix justitiae,
 Communis pacis amatrix,
 Quae tua gloria sit, maxima gesta docent!
 Alleluja, alleluja.
 
 Motetus
 Nexus amicie Musa modulante Camena
 Magnificetur, enim nil sine pace valet.
 O quando jungi posuisti, Berna, Friburgo,
 Quanta mali rabies impetuosa ruit!
 Optima cum vobis communia vota fruere,
 O quibus, o quantis utraque functa fuit!
 Vivite felices! praeclara Sabaudia pacis
 Auctrix, servatrix foedera vestra probat.
 Praegenitum Ludovicum
 comitemque Philippum
 Cernitis: en magnum pondus amicitiae.
 Alleluja, Alleluja.
