Full text: 

Descendi in hortum meum ut viderem et inspicerem si floruissent mala punica. Revertere Sunamitis ut intueamur te. 

O virgo sole splendidior, o cunctis astris clarior, adsis nobis, propitia consolatrix o Maria purissima.

English translation: 

I descended into my garden in order to look and see whether the pomegranates had bloomed. Return, o Shulammite, so that we may admire you.

O virgin, more splendid than the sun, o brighter than all the stars, be there for us, gracious consoler, o most pure Mary.
