Full text: 

O sacrum convivium
In quo Christus sumitur.
Recolitur memoria
Passionis eius, 
Mens impletur gratia
Et futurae gloriae
Nobis pignus datur.

O quam suavis est, domine, spiritus tuus.

Veni sancte spiritus
Et emitte caelitus
Lucis tuae radium.

Caro cibus, sanguis potus,
Manet tamen Christus totus
Sub utraque specie.

English translation: 

O holy banquet, in which Christ is received. The memory of His Passion is renewed, the soul is filled with grace and a token of the future glory is given to us.

O how sweet your spirit is, o Lord.

Come Holy Ghost and emanate the ray of your light from above.

Flesh becomes food, blood becomes drink, yet, He still remains completely Christ in both natures.

Imperatrix gloriosa,
Potens et imperiosa,
Iesu Christi generosa
Mater atque filia.

Radix Iesse speciosa,
Virga florens et frondosa
Quam rigavit copiosa
Deitatis gratia.

Auster lenis te perflavit
Et perflando fecundavit
Aquilonem qui fugavit
Sua cum potentia.

Florem ergo genuisti
Ex quo fructum protulisti,
Gabrieli cum fuisti
Paranympho credula.

Ioseph iustus vir expavit,
Ista dum consideravit,
Sciens quod non irrigavit
Florescentem virgulam.

Pene tamen conservavit
Archanum nec divulgavit
Sponsam sed magnificavit
Honorans ut dominam.

Caeli quondam roraverunt
Ex quo nubes concreverunt
Et concretae stillaverunt
Virginis in uterum.

Res miranda, res novella
Nam procedit sol de stella,
Regem dum parit puella
Viri thori nescia.

Sancta Maria ora pro nobis.

Ergo clemens et benigna
Cunctorumque laude digna
Tuo nato nos consigna
Pia per suffragia.

Sancta dei genitrix ora pro nobis.

Ut carnali qua gravamur
Compede sic absolvamur,
Ut soluti transferamur
Ad caeli palatia.
Amen.

English translation: 

Glorious Empress, powerful and imperious, generous mother and daughter of Jesus Christ.

Splendid root of Jesse, flowering and leafy branch, which the abundant Grace of God nourished.

The sweet Auster pervaded you and, in so doing, impregnated you, and it chased away the North Wind with its power.

Thus you bore the flower from which you brought forth the fruit, when you, trusting <him> were with Gabriel, the bridesman.

Joseph, a just man, became afraid, when he considered this situation, knowing that he did not nourish the little blossoming branch.

Yet, he guarded well and did not divulge the secret, but rather he magnified his bride, honoring her like a lady.

The skies dripped, from which clouds condensed and once compact they trickled down in the womb of the Virgin.

Wondrous thing, unheard thing! For the Sun arises from a star, when a girl ignorant of a man's bed brings forth a king.

Saint Mary, pray for us!

Thus, you merciful and kind and worthy of praise from all, make us known to your Son through your pious intercessions.

Holy Mother of God, pray for us!

So that we thus be absolved from the carnal shackle with which we are burdened, and, once freed be transported to the palaces of heaven.
Amen.

Further notes: 

See also M090 and T090 (shorter version of the sequence).

Gasser suggests that the version of the sequence that concludes each verse with the word “Maria” may have served as an inspiration to insert the litany sections into the motet, see GASSER 2001, 247. His reference to the Litany of Loreto in regard to the litany insertions seems, however, anachronistic.

One of the closest version is that of a Neapolitan book of hours (c.1480), D-Ngm 22402, 84v (as reproduced in CIP; see http://bilder.manuscripta-mediaevalia.de/hs//katalogseiten/HSK0060_c134_JPG.htm):

Further notes: 

Although the rhyme scheme and some stock phrases recall contemporary sequences, this text has not been found, as such, in reference works or other sources.

According to CMM 106.4, xlix, "The insisting references to rulers’ (duces) and leaders’ guidance (duces, ducendo, duci) suggest that the motet could have been composed for a specific occasion or performance event, possibly for the Duke of Milan himself".

Ecce ... tuum = an Annunciation/Advent antiphon with this text exists (Cantus ID 002491), but the simple chant formula included in the tenors of M058 leads to think that the reference is instead to a Marian versicle based on this fundamental Gospel verse; THOMPSON 2005, 353 cites a late-thirtheenth-century text which combines the Ave Maria prayer with other verses from the same Gospel narrative, in a condensed version of Luke 1:28-38:
Ave Maria, gratia plena, Dominus tecum. Benedicta tu in mulieribus et benedictus fructus ventris tui. Spiritus Sanctus superveniet in te; virtus Altissimi obumbrabit tibi. Ecce ancilla Domini; fiat michi secundum verbum tuum.
