TEXT AND TRANSLATION

Cum processit factura
digiti Dei,
formata
ad imaginem Dei
in ortu mixti sanguinis
per peregrinationem
casus Ade,
elementa susceperunt gaudia in te,
o laudabilis Maria,
celo rutilante
et in laudibus sonante.
When the issue of God’s fingers
went forth
shaped
in God’s likeness
in a birth of commingled blood
through the wanderings
of Adam’s fall,
the elements took delight in you,
o praiseworthy Mary,
with the sky trilling and resounding 
with your praise.
