A Danish monk sits alone in the scriptorium, singing out passionate praises to the Virgin Mary.


Mit hjerte brænder hedt som et bål og så det skal
pro laudibus Mariæ.
Vore min tunge gjort af stål og havde et mål
totamque vim sophie.
Måtte jeg lærdommen finde
hanc laudare virginem,
da ville jeg digte og rime.
Reginarum regine et domine,
du loves i allen time.

Hvad siger jeg den usle mand som lidet kan
de hac virginitate?
Al din sorg du overvandt som du det fandt
sua benignitate.
Du er vel værdig at prises
templum dei trinitas
hvorfra dine dyder vises.
Majestatis unitas essencie,
du ærefulde og vise.

O lux et decus hominum, lux luminum,
Maria med dyd og fromme.
Pereriste filium, et dominum,
Jesus den signede blomme.
Lad os aldrig adskilles,
virge jesse florida,
oprunden som rose og lilje.
Da nobis solacium, et gaudium,
med magt og fuldgod vilje.

English translation:

My heart burns hot like a pyre and so it should
To praise Mary
Were my tongue made of steel and had a purpose
and fullness of wisdom
Might I find the knowledge
To praise this virgin
I would write poetry and rhyme.
Queen of queens and mistress
Be praised for all time.

What say i, oh wretched man who knows none
of her virginity?
All your grief you overcome as you find it
in your mercy.
You are praiseworthy
like the temple of the Trinity of God
from which your virtues appear.
Majestic unison of essence
you are honorable and wise.

Oh light and joy of people, light of lights,
Mariy, both virtuos and pious.
You have born a son and lord
Jesus the blessed flowers.
Never seperate from me,
oh blossoming branch
sprung from rose and lily.
Give us comfort and joy
With might and willpower.
