 HYMNUS

1 Christe, splendor Patris,
Dei mater Virgo,
Ioseph, tam sacrórum
pígnorum servátor,

2 Nitet vestra domus
flóribus virtútum,
unde gratiárum
fons prománat ipse.

3 Angeli stupéntes
Natum Dei cernunt
servi forma indútum
servis famulántem.

4 Imus præes, Ioseph,
humilísque iubes;
iubes et María
et utríque servis.

5 Cunctis præstant aulis
hæc egéna sæpta,
salus unde cœpit
géneris humáni.

6 Iesu, Mater, Ioseph,
mansiónis vestræ
nostras date sedes
donis frui sanctis.

7 Tibi laudes, Christe,
spem qui nobis præbes,
tuos per paréntes
cæli adíre domum. Amen.
