Full text: 

Memento, salutis auctor, 
Quod nostri quondam corporis
Ex illibata virgine
Nascendo formam sumpseris.

Gloria tibi domine 
Qui natus es de virgine
Cum patre et sancto spiritu
In sempiterna saecula.

English translation: 

Remember, Creator of salvation, that you assumed the form of our body formerly by being born of a spotless virgin.

Glory to you, Lord, who are born of the Virgin, with the Father and the Holy Spirit, for ever eternal ages.
