Angelus Emittitur

Angelus emittitur
Ave dulce promitur
Semen Dei seritur,
Igitur porta cæli panditur.

Vim natura patitur,
Filius concipitur,
Virgo non corrumpitur,
Igitur porta cæli panditur.

Grex in nocte pascitur,
Cæli lumen funditur,
Laus in altis canitur,
Igitur porta cæli panditur.

Gaudium prædicitur,
Pax quoquæ promittitur
Bonis tamen traditur,
Igitur porta cæli panditur.

Novum sydus oritur,
Mortis umbra tollitur,
Mundi salus gignitur,
Igitur porta cæli panditur.

Diligendus proditur,
Nil culpandus moritur,
Non vincendus capitur,
Igitur porta cæli panditur.

Cruci vita figitur,
Infernus destruitur,
Captivitas tollitur,
Igitur porta cæli panditur.

Adam nexu solvitur,
Mors orco deprimitur,
Caput hostis teritur,
Igitur porta cæli panditur.

Argumentis igitur,
In his Christus sistitur,
Morti sic excluditur,
Igitur porta cæli panditur.
