O viridissima virga,
Cum venit tempus
Nam in te floruit
Et illa apparuerunt omnia in viriditate plena.
Unde celi dederunt rorem super gramen
Deinde facta est esca hominibus
Unde, o suavis Virgo,
Hec omnia Eva contempsit.
Nunc autem laus sit Altissimo.
Hail! O greenest branch
When the time came
For in you
And they all appeared in full freshness.
Whence the heavens poured dew over the grass
From there food for humans was made,
Whence, o sweet Virgin,
All these things Eve scorned.
But now let there be praise to the Most High.
