Signum Magnum

Signum magnum apparuit in caelo:
Mulier amicta sole et luna sub pedibus ejus
Et in capite ejus corona stellarum duodecim.
Cantate Domino canticum novum quia mirabilia fecit.
Gloria Patri, et Filio, et Spiritui Sancto.
Sicut erat in principio et nunc, et semper et in saecula saeculorum,
Amen.

[translation]
A great sign appeared in the heavens:
A woman clothed with the sun and the moon under her feet,
And on her head a crown of twelve stars.
Sing to the Lord a new song because He hat done wonderful things.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be,
Amen.
