TRANSLATION

O pulcre facies
Deum aspicientes
et in aurora edificantes,
o beate virgines,
quam nobiles estis,
in quibus rex se consideravit,
cum in vobis
omnia celestia ornamenta
presignavit,
ubi etiam suavissimus hortus estis,
in omnibus ornamentis
redolentes.
O lovely faces
gazing upon God
and serving Him in the daybreak,
O blessed virgins
how noble are you
on whom the king settled
when he
marked you out
with every heavenly adornment,
to be a balm-scented garden,
casting perfume
from every inflorescence.
