Intemerata Dei mater
Language: Latin 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Intemerata Dei mater, generosa puella,
milia carminibus quam stipant agmina divum,
respice nos tantum, si quid iubilando meremur.
Tu scis, virgo decens, quanti discrimen agatur
exulibus passimque quibus iactemur arenis.

Nec sine te manet ulla quies, spes nulla laboris;
nulla salus patrie, domus aut potiunda parentis,
cui, regina, praees: dispensans omnia laeto suscipis
ore pios dulci quos nectare potas, et facis
assiduos epulis accumbere sacris.

Aspiciat facito miseros pietatis ocello Filius:
Ipsa potes. Fessos hinc arripe sursum diva,
virgo manu, tutos et in arce locato.
