TEXT AND TRANSLATION

O frondens virga,
in tua nobilitate stans
sicut aurora procedit:
nunc gaude et letare
et nos debiles dignare
a mala consuetudine liberare
atque manum tuam porrige
ad erigendum nos.
Oh blossoming bough
standing in all your nobility
just as the morning awakens:
so now rejoice and be glad,
though we are frail deem us worthy,
keep us from falling into habitual wickedness
and also extend your hand out to
help us stand upright.
