HYMNUS

1 Adórna, Sion, thálamum,
quæ præstoláris Dóminum;
sponsum et sponsam súscipe
vigil fídei lúmine.

2 Beáte senex, própera,
promíssa comple gáudia
et revelándum géntibus
revéla lumen ómnibus.

3 Paréntes Christum déferunt,
in templo templum ófferunt;
legi parére vóluit
qui legi nihil débuit.

4 Offer, beáta, párvulum,
tuum et Patris únicum;
offer per quem offérimur,
prétium quo redímimur.

5 Procéde, virgo régia,
profer Natum cum hóstia;
monet omnes ad gáudium
qui venit salus ómnium.

6 Iesu, tibi sit glória,
qui te revélas géntibus,
cum Patre et almo Spíritu,
in sempitérna sæcula. Amen.
