Auróra Solis Núntia | 2016 | TB or SA a cappella | 3'

  • Aurora, solis nuntia

    Florumque mensi praevia,

    Fabri sonoram malleo

    Domum salutat Nazarae.


    Salve, caput domesticum,

    Sub quo supremus Artifex,

    Sudore salso roridus,

    Exercet artem patriam.


    Altis locatus sedibus

    Celsaeque Sponsae proximus,

    Adesto nunc clientibus,

    Quos vexat indigentia.


    Absintque vis et iurgia,

    Fraus omnis a mercedibus;

    Victus cibique copiam

    Mensuret una parcitas.


    O Trinitatis Unitas,

    Ioseph precante, quaesumus,

    In pace nostros omnium

    Gressus viamque dirige.


    O dawn announcing the sun

    Beginning the month of flowering;

    The workman's resounding hammer

    Salutes the home at Nazareth.


    Hail, head of the household

    Beneath whom is the supreme Artificer;

    Who, bedewed with salty sweat,

    Exercises his father's trade.


    He was placed on a high seat

    nearest to his Noble Spouse;

    be near now to all thy clients

    who are troubled by indigency.


    Strength and strife be absent!

    and all defrauding of wages;

    May copious nourishment of food

    be limited only by moderation.


    O Trinity, O Unity,

    by the prayers of Joseph;

    Direct in peace

    all our steps and our path.
