Prima pars
Corona aurea super caput ejus.
Expressa signo sanctitatis,
gloria honoris,
et opus fortitudinis.
Quoniam praevenisti eum
in benedictionibus dulcedinis
posuisti in capite eius
coronam de lapide pretioso.

Secunda pars
Domine,
praevenisti eum
in benedictionibus dulcedinis,
posuisti in capite eius
coronam de lapide pretioso.
Vitam petiit a te,
tribuisti ei longitudine dierum
in saeculum saeculi.
