O miranda creatura
Full text: 

O miranda creatura, 
Virgo eris semper pura
Et intacta genitura 
Summi patris filium.

Partum dabis exquisitum,
Toti mundo inauditum,
Ex te, virgo, [de]finitum 
Christum deum et hominem.

English translation: 

O wonderful creature, you will always be a pure virgin and, untouched, you will give birth to the Son of the highest Father.

You will deliver a wonderful birth, a birth unheard by the whole world, from you, a virgin, Christ, defined god and man.
