HYMNUS

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 Iesu, tibi sit glória,
qui natus es de Vírgine,
cum Patre et almo Spíritu,
in sempitérna sæcula. Amen.
