HYMNUS

1 Quod chorus vatum venerándus olim
Spíritu Sancto cécinit replétus,
in Dei factum genetríce constat
esse María.

2 Hæc Deum cæli Dominúmque terræ
virgo concépit peperítque virgo,
atque post partum méruit manére
invioláta.

3 Quem senex iustus Símeon in ulnis
in domo sumpsit Dómini, gavísus
ob quod optátum próprio vidéret
lúmine Christum.

4 Tu libens votis, pétimus, precántum,
regis ætérni génetrix, favéto,
clara quæ fundis Géniti benígni
múnera lucis.

5 Christe, qui lumen Patris es supérni,
qui Patris nobis réseras profúnda,
nos fac ætérnæ tibi ferre laudes
lucis in aula. Amen.
