Sibylla Erythraea
Language: Latin 
Available translation(s): ENG FIN FRE
Cerno Dei natum, qui se dimisit ab alto.
Ultima felices referent cum tempora soles.
Hebraea, quem virgo fere [feret?] de stirpe decora,
In terris multum teneris passurus ab annis.
Magnus erit tamen hic divino carmine vates
Virgine matre satus, prudenti pectore verax.

Näin Jumalalle syntyvän pojan, näin...
Language: Finnish (Suomi)  after the Latin 
Näin Jumalalle syntyvän pojan, näin hänen laskeutuvan korkeuksista.
Synkät ajat muuttuvat äärimmäiseksi riemuksi.
Hän joka syntyy hyväsukuisesta heprealaisesta neidosta
kärsii paljon maan päällä jo lapsuudestaan asti.
Mutta suurena näkee hänet viisas tietäjä,
neitsytäidin pojan, joka totisesti on viisas sydän.
