by Francisco Guerrero (1528 – 1599)


O crux benedicta
quae sola fuisti digna portare talentum mundi.
Dulce lignum, dulces clavos, dulcia ferens pondera,
super omnium ligna cedrorum tu sola excelsior,
in qua vita mundi pependit,
in qua Christus triumphavit,
et mors mortem superavit in aeternum.

O blessed cross,
which alone was worthy to bear the weight of the world.
Sweet the wood, sweet the nails, bearing sweet weights.
You alone surpass all the wood of cedar,
upon which the salvation of the world hung,
Upon which Christ triumphed
and overcame death forever.
