  • TEXT


    1. Iste confessor Domini sacratus

    Festa plebs cuius celebrat per orbem,

    Hodie letus meruit secreta, 

    Scandere Cœli.


    2. Qui pius, prudens, humilis, pudicus, 

    Sobrius, castus fuit et quietus 

    Vita, dum presens vegetavit ejus 

    Corporis artus.


    3. Ad sacrum cuius tumulum frequenter,

    Membra languentem modo sanitati,

    Quolibet morbo fuerint gravata,



    4. Unde nunc noster chorus in honorem

    Ipsius hymnum canit nunc libenter; 

    Ut piis ejus meritis juvemur 

    Omne per aevum.


    5. Sit salus illi decus atque virtus,

    Qui supra cœli residens cacumen,

    Totius mundi machinam gubernat,

    Trinus et unus. Amen.


    Antiphonale Monasticum




    1. This the Confessor of the Lord, whose triumph 

    Now all the faithful celebrate, with gladness 

    Erst on this feast-day merited to enter 

    Into his glory. 


    2. Saintly and prudent, modest in behavior. 

    Peaceful and sober, chaste was he, and lowly. 

    While that life's vigor, coursing through his members, 

    Quickened his being. 


    3. Sick ones of old time, to his tomb resorting. 

    Sorely by ailments manifold afflicted, 

    Oft-times have welcomed health and strength returning. 

    At his petition. 


    4. Whence we in chorus gladly do him honor, 

    Chanting his praises with devout affection, 

    That in his merits we may have a portion. 

    Now and forever.


    5. His be the glory, power and salvation,

    Who over all things reigneth in the highest,

    Earth's mighty fabric ruling and directing,

    Onely and Trinal. Amen.
