Gaudet mater ecclesia
que pridem prolisnescia.
Feconda sponsi gracia
fit sterilis purepera.
Frustrata legis federe
ces sat ancilla parere
sed fides in baptismate
preponit pertus libere.

Äiti Kirkko iloitsee hänestä
Language: Finnish (Suomi)  after the Latin 
Äiti Kirkko iloitsee hänestä,
joka ei ennen lapsista tiennyt.
Hedelmöittävän puolison armosta
tuli hedelmätön raskaaksi.
Raskaan lain kumosi
Neitsyt synnyttämällä,
mutta usko kasteeseen 
sai hänet synnyttämään.
