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

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

English translation: 

The skies once dripped and thus clouds condensed and solidified they trickled down in the womb of the Virgin.

Joseph, a just man, was scared, when he considered these things, knowing that he did not nourish the little blossoming branch.
