Cari Musici, cum grato silentio
Voces comprimite,
Suspendite sonos,
Cantare cessate,
Et contemplate dilecte
Jesu amores.
Non me turbate, no, amante,
Armonici chori
Cantare, cessate.

Quantae deliciae
Quantae fortunata beant me,
Rapit meum cor ad se
Jesus solus voce amante.

Quanta laetitia
Quanta me divina replet lux
In amore verus dux
Mihi donat gaudia tanta.

Ah! Quid dico! Anima ingrata,
in silentio taciturno
Amores sponsi audio sepelire,
Ah non tacete, no,
O voces canorae,
Non tacete

Amare et silere,cor,
Tentas impossibile,
Plus tormentum sit terribile
Quando curat reticere.

Tacere et ardere, no,
Non potes tam firmissime,
Tuae pene sunt durissimae,
Si tacendo vis languere.

Alleluia
