Hymnus
1. Jesu, coróna célsior,
Et véritas sublímior,
Qui confiténti sérvulo,
Reddis perénne prǽmium.
2. Da supplicánti cœ́tui,
Obténtu hujus óptimi,
Remissiónem críminum,
Rumpéndo nexum vínculi.
3. Anni recúrso témpore,
Dies illúxit lúmine,
Quo Sanctus hic de córpore
Polum migrávit prǽpotens.
4. Hic vana terræ gáudia,
Et luculénta prǽdia,
Pollúta sorde députans,
Ovans tenet cæléstia.
5. Te, Christe, Rex piíssime,
Hic confiténdo júgiter,
Calcávit hostem fórtiter,
Supérbum ac satéllitem.
6. Virtúte clarus et fide,
Confessiónis órdine,
Jejúna membra déferens,
Dapes supérnas óbtinet.
7. Proínde te, piíssime,
Precámur omnes súpplices,
Ut hujus almi grátia
Nobis remíttas débita.
8. Glória Patri Dómino,
Glória Unigénito,
Una cum Sancto Spíritu,
In sempitérna sǽcula.
Amen.
1. O Jesus, Thou most exalted crown,
and truth most sublime,
who bestow est on Your Confessor
an eternal reward.
2. Through his intercession
grant to Thy suppliant assembly
the remission of their sins,
whilst Thou dost rend asunder the bond of the chain.
3. The space of a year having elapsed,
the day again shines forth in its splendor,
on which this Saint, leaving his earthly body,
ascended into heaven.
4. Considering the vain joys
and showy goods of the world
as defiled with filth,
he now in triumph possesses those that are heavenly.
5. O Christ, most loving King,
by unceasingly confessing Thee,
he trampled under foot the wiles of the evil spirits,
and the savage prince of hell.
6. Renowned for faith and virtue,
zealous in the confession of his faith,
bearing his members mortified
he now participates in the heavenly banquet.
7. Therefore, most gracious God,
We beg you for all our pleas
that on his grace,
You remit the punishment due to us.
8. Eternal glory to the Father,
and to the only-begotten,
and to the Holy Spirit,
through all eternity.
Amen.
