Original text and translations
Quae est ista quae progreditur quasi aurora consurgens,
pulchra ut luna, electa ut sol, terribilis ut castrorum acies ordinata?
Who is she that cometh forth as the morning rising,
fair as the moon, bright as the sun, terrible as an army set in array?
Who is she that cometh like the dawn,
fair as the moon, bright as the sun,
terrible as an army prepared for battle?
