Hymnus
1. Ætérna Christi múnera,
Apostolórum glóriam,
Laudes canéntes débitas,
Lætis canámus méntibus.
2. Ecclesiárum Príncipes,
Belli triumpháles duces,
Cæléstis aulæ mílites,
Et vera mundi lúmina.
3. Devóta Sanctórum fides,
Invícta spes credéntium,
Perfécta Christi cáritas
Mundi triúmphat príncipem.
4. In his patérna glória,
In his volúntas Spíritus,
Exsúltat in his Fílius
Cælum replétur gáudio.
5. Te nunc, Redémptor, quǽsumus,
Ut ipsórum consórtio
Jungas precántes sérvulos,
In sempitérna sǽcula.
Amen.
1. The eternal gifts of Christ the King,
the Apostles' glory, let us sing;
and all with hearts of gladness raise
and all with hearts of gladness raise
2. For they the Church's princes are,
triumphant leaders in the war,
the heavenly King's own warrior band,
true lights to lighten every land.
3. Theirs was the steadfast faith of saints,
the hope that never yields nor faints,
the love of Christ in perfect glow,
that lay the prince of this world low.
4. In them the Father's glory shone,
in them the Spirit's will was done,
the Son himself exults in them;
joy fills the new Jerusalem.
5. Praise to the Father, with the Son,
and Holy Spirit, Three in One;
as ever was in ages past,
and so shall be while ages last.
Amen.
