TRANSLATION

Quia ergo femina mortem instruxit,
clara virgo illam interemit,
et ideo est summa benedictio
in feminea forma
pre omni creatura,
quia Deus factus est homo
in dulcissima et beata virgine.
Therefore, because a woman contrived death,
a resplendent virgin abolished it,
and for that reason the blessing highest
above all creation
takes a womanly form
because God was made human
in a most-sweet and blessed virgin.
