Mirabile mysterium declaratur hodie,
innovantur naturae; Deus homo factus est;
id quod fuit, permansit, et quod non erat,
assumpsit, non commixtionem passus neque divisionem.


English.png English translation

A wondrous mystery is declared today,
an innovation is made upon nature;
God is made man; that which he was,
he remains, and that which he was not,
he takes on, suffering neither commixture nor division.
