Entonces llamo a un archangel                          It was an angel he beckoned ;

y enbiolo a un donzella                                      he waved him away on an errand   

que se llamaba maria                                         to Mary --treasure the name.

de cuyo consentimiento 

el mysterio se hacia                                            She must say the right word, this maiden,

en la cual la trinidad                                            for the wonder of wonders to be ;

de carne al verbo vestia                                      for the Word to be dressed forever

y aunque tres hacen la obra                               in flesh for the mighty three.

en el uno se hacia

y quedo el verbo encarnado                                Three had a hand in the work,

y el que tenia solo padre                                     Who but the Word made flesh?

que de varon concebia                                         The son had a father before ;

por lo cual hijo de Dios                                          Concieving as mothers of men.

y de el hombre se decia
