Pero que seja a genteA
d'outra lei e descreudaA
os que a Virgen mais amanB
a esses ela ajudaA
-
Fremosa miragre destoA
fez a Virgen groriosaC
na cidade de MarrocosC
que mui gran' e fremosaC
a un rei que era endeA
sennor que perigoosaC
guerra con outro aviaD
per que gran mester ajudaA
-
Avia de quen lla d sseC
ca assi corn' el cercadoA
jazia dentr' en MarrocosC
ca o outro ja passadoA
era per un grande rioE
que Morabe chamadoA
con muitos de cavaleirosC
e mui gran gente miudaA
-
E corrian pelas portasC
da vila e quant' achavanB
que fosse fora dos murosC
todo per for a fillavanB
E porend' os de MarrocosC
al Rei tal conssello davanB
que saisse da cidadeA
con b a gent' esleudaA
-
D'armas e que mantenenteA
cono outro rei lidasseC
e logo fora da vilaD
a sina sacar mandasseC
da Virgen Santa MariaD
e que per ren non dultasseC
que os logo non vencesseC
pois la ouvesse tendudaA
-
Demais que sair fesesseC
dos crish os o concelloD
conas cruzes da eigrejaF
E el creeu seu conselloD
e poi la sina sacaronB
daquela que espelloD
dos angeos e dos santosC
e dos mouros foi viudaA
-
Wue eran da outra parteA
atal espant' en colleronB
que pero gran poder eraD
logo todos se venceronB
e as tendas que trouxeranB
e o al todo perderonB
e morreu y muita genteA
dessa fea e barvudaA
-
E per Morabe passaronB
que ante passad' ouveranB
en sen que perdud' avianB
todo quant' ali trouxeranB
atan gran medo da sinaB
e das cruzes y preseranB
que fogindo non aviaD
niun redea teudaA
-
E assi Santa MariaD
ajudou a seus amigosC
pero que d'outra lei eranB
a britar seus eemigosC
que macar que eran muitosC
nonos pre aron dous figosC
e assi foi ssa merceeC
de todos mui conno udaA

The Virgin will aid thoseC
who most love HerH
although they may be of another faithI
and disbelieversC
-
The Glorious VirginB
performed a beautiful miracleD
illustrating this themeJ
in the city of MarrakechK
which is large and beautifulD
for a king who was then its rulerH
He was waging bitter war with another kingL
and for this reason he was in great needA
-
of assistance from anyoneB
who could give it to himM
He was besieged inside MarrakechK
for the other king had already crossedA
a large river called MorabeN
with many knightsC
and a great army of foot soldiersC
-
-
They ran toward the gates of the cityA
and all they found outside the wallsC
they took by forceC
Therefore those of MarrakechK
advised the king to go outA
of the city with a few goodA
carefully chosenB
-
-
men at arms and fight it out right thereO
with the other kingL
and to order the bannerH
of the Holy Virgin MaryA
taken out of the cityA
and to doubt not that he would defeatA
the enemy at onceC
as soon as he had unfurled itA
-
Furthermore they advised himM
to have the Christian congregation go outA
with the crosses from the churchP
He took their adviceC
and when they took out the banner of that OneB
who is mirror of angels and saintsC
and it was seen by the MoorsC
-
-
on the other side they were so alarmed by it thatA
although it was a powerful armyA
all were soon defeatedA
AThey lost the tents they had broughtA
and everything elseC
Many people of that uglyA
bearded crew died thereO
-
-
They fled back across the Morabe RiverH
and although they had lostA
all they had brought thereO
such great fright of the bannerH
and the crosses seized themQ
that none of them drew backR
on the reins as they fledA
-
-
Thus Holy Mary helped Her friendsC
although they were of another faithI
to defeat their enemiesC
for although they were manyA
they did not giveS
two figs about themQ
In that way was Her mercyA
made manifest to allD
