Lilium

Os iusti meditabitur sapientiam
Et lingua eius loquetur iudicium (Psalmi 36:30)
Beatus vir qui suffert tentationem
Quoniam cum probatus fuerit accipiet coronam vitae (Iacobi 1:12)
{Kyrie, fons bonitatis}
Kyrie, Ignis Divine, Eleison
{O quam sancta, quam serena, quam benigna
Quam amoena esse virgo creditur.}
O quam sancta, quam serena, quam benigna
Quam amoena O castitatis lilium

Translation:
The mouth of the Just shall meditate wisdom
And his tongue shall speak judgement (Psalm 37:30)
Blessed is the man that endureth temptation
For when he hath been proved he shall receive a crown of life (James 1:12)
{Lord, fountain of holiness}
Lord, Fire Divine, have mercy
{O how holy, how serene, how benign
How pleasant, is this virgin who believeth!}
O how holy, how calm, how benign
How pleasant, O lily of purity
