Hæc est generatio quærentium eum, quærentium faciem Dei Iacob. Attollite portas principes vestras, et elevamini portæ æternales: et introibit Rex gloriæ. Quis est iste rex gloriæ?Dominus fortis et potens: Dominus potens in prælio. Attollite portas principes vestras, et elevamini portæ æternales: et introibit Rex gloriæ. Quis est iste rex gloriæ? On verso: Exaltata est sancta Dei Genitrix, super choros Angelorum ad caelestia regna. Diffusa est gratia in labiis tuis: propterea benedixit te Deus in aeternum. Jube, domne, benedicere. Benedictio Alma Virgo virginum intercedat pro nobis ad Dominum. Amen. Beatissima Virgo Maria misericorditer actura pro nobis surge et amplectere misericordiam redemptoris, da preces pro nobis quos cernis offensos ante oculos conditoris. Tu autem… English translation: Recto: …heart, who has not received his soul in vain, nor sworn deceitfully to his neighbor. He will receive a blessing from the Lord, and mercy from God, his Savior. Lift up your gates, you princes, and be lifted up, eternal gates. And the King of Glory shall enter. Who is this King of Glory? The Lord who is strong and powerful; the Lord powerful in battle. Lift up your gates, you princes, and be lifted up, eternal gates. And the King of Glory shall enter. Who is this King of Glory? Verso: Exalted is the holy Mother of God above choirs of Angels, unto the kingdom of heaven. Grace is poured abroad in thy lips: therefore hath God blessed thee for ever. Grant, Lord, a blessing. The virgin herself of virgins, make intercession for us unto our Lord. Amen. Arise, most blessed Virgin Mary, and mercifully act for us, arise and embrace the mercy of our redeemer, pray for us whom thou hast sifted before the offended eyes of our creator. But thou, O Lord…
