HYMNUS

1 Cohors beáta Séraphim
quem Christus arcte díligit
laudet, chorúsque cánticis
noster resúltet æmulis.

2 Hic discit, almus édocet
hic unde Verbum pródeat,
sinúmque matris ímpleat,
sinum Patris non déserens.

3 Felix Ioánnes, déligit
et te Magíster próvidus,
ut clara Thabor lúmina
hortíque cernas tædia.

4 Tu, raptus in sublímia,
arcána cæli cónspicis,
Agni sed et mystéria
Ecclesiæque pércipis.

5 O digne fili Vírgine,
succéssor alti nóminis,
nos adde Matri fílios,
nos conde Christi in péctore.

6 Verbo sit ingens glória,
caro quod est et créditur,
cum Patre et almo Spíritu
in sempitérna sæcula. Amen.
