TEXT AND TRANSLATION

Alleluia!
O virga mediatrix,
sancta viscera tua
mortem superaverunt
et venter tuus 
omnes creaturas illuminavit
in pulchro flore 
de suavissima integritate
clausi pudoris tui orto.
Alleluia!
O interceding bough,
Your holy organs
have conquered death
and your womb
has lit up all creation
as the lovely bloom that
germinated in the luscious untouched-ness
of your cloistered chastity.
