Gaude Barbara beata,
summe pollens in doctrina angeli mysterio.
Gaude virgo Deo grata,
quae Baptistam imitata es in vitae stadio.
Gaude, cum te visitavit
Christus vita et curavit plagas actu proprio.
Gaude, quia meruisti
impetrare quod petisti, dante Dei Filio.
Gaude, namque elevata es
in caela, et velata nobili martyrio.
Te laudantem familiam
trahe post te ad gloriam finito exilio.
O Barbara tam decora, pro nobis Christum exora.
Rejoice, O blessed Barbara, most highly versed
in holy learning by the angelís mystic teaching.
Rejoice, O virgin loved of God,
who emulates the Baptist in the struggle of your life.
Rejoice, for Christ came to you while you
yet lived and healed your wounds by his own hand.
Rejoice, for you were found worthy to obtain the
answer to your prayers from the hand of Godís Son.
Rejoice, for you have been raised to highest heaven
and are clothed in the glory of noble martyrdom.
See your servants sing your praises and bring
them with you into glory after this our exile here.
O most gracious Barbara, make your prayer to Christ for us.
