Vesperas - Hymnus
25 December, 2020
1. Christe, redémptor ómnium,
Ex Patre, Patris Unice,
Solus ante princípium
Natus ineffabíliter,
2. Tu lumen, tu splendor Patris,
Tu spes perénnis ómnium,
Inténde quas fundunt preces
Tui per orbem sérvuli.
3. Salútis auctor, récole
Quod nostri quondam córporis,
Ex illibáta Vírgine
Nascéndo, formam súmpseris.
4. Hic præsens testátur dies,
Currens per anni círculum,
Quod solus a sede Patris
Mundi salus advéneris ;
5. Hunc cælum, terra, hunc mare,
Hunc omne quod in eis est,
Auctórem advéntus tui
Laudat exsúltans cántico.
6. Nos quoque, qui sancto tuo
Redémpti sumus sánguine,
Ob diem natális tui
Hymnum novum concínimus.
7. Jesu, tibi sit glória,
Qui natus es de Vírgine,
Cum Patre et almo Spíritu,
In sempitérna sǽcula.
1. O Christ, Redeemer of all,
the Father’s only Son,
before world began,
alone begotten ineffably.
2. You the light and splendor of the Father,
You the eternal hope of all men,
attend to the prayers
which your servants pour forth in all the world.
3. Remember, O Author of our salvation,
that once of our body
from the spotless Virgin
were, and born you took the form.
4. This present day gives witness
in the passing cycle of the year
that you alone came from the throne of the Father
as the salvation of the world.
5. Him sky, earth, Him sea,
Him all that is in them praise,
the coming of their creator,
exulting in song.
6. We too, who have been
redeemed by your holy blood,
on the day of your birth
together sing a new hymn.
7. O Jesus, to you, all honor, laud, and glory be,
whom with the Father and Holy Spirit
