Original text and translations
Original text and translations may be found at Adorna thalamum tuum. Soriano's text differs from others in the second line:
Adorna thalamum tuum, Sion, et suscipe Regem Christum:
Adorn your bridal chamber, Sion, and receive Christ the King: embrace the Messiah and congratulate his mother: for she carries the King of glorious new light. She remains a virgin, bringing in her hands a son, conceived before the morning star: whom Simeon, taking him in his arms, proclaimed to the people to be the Lord of life and death, and saviour of the world.
