Matutinum - Hymnus
27 January, 2022
1. Nox atra rerum cóntegit
1. Dark night covers.
Terræ colóres ómnium:
The colors of all things on earth;
Nos confiténtes póscimus
We pray to you, confessing our sins,
Te, juste judex córdium.
O just Judge of hearts.
2. Ut áuferas piácula,
2. That you take away our sins,
Sordésque mentis ábluas:
Wash our mind from uncleanness,
Donésque, Christe, grátiam,
And, for your grace, O Christ,
Ut arceántur crímina.
That all our sins be routed.
3. Mens ecce torpet ímpia,
3. Behold our soul lies motionless
Quam culpa mordet nóxia:
In its wickedness and the grip of guilty sin holds it fast.
Obscúra gestit tóllere,
Yet its desire is to put away the works of darkness
Et te, Redémptor, quǽrere.
And to seek You, its Redeemer.
4. Repélle tu calíginem
4. Strongly repel the darkness
Intrínsecus quam máxime,
Which is in us;
Ut in beáto gáudeat
That the blest may rejoice
Se collocári lúmine.
To be set in the light.
5. Præsta, Pater piíssime,
5. Most loving Father, hear our prayer,
Patríque compar Unice,
And you, O Christ co-equal Son,
Cum Spíritu Paráclito
Who with the Spirit Paraclete
Regnans per omne sǽculum.
Rule all the ages as they run.
