- Invicte Martyr, unicum
Patris secutus Filium,
Victis triumphas hostibus,
Victor fruens cœlestibus.
- Tui precatus munere
Nostrum reatum dilue,
Arcens mali contagium,
Vitæ repellens tædium.
- Soluta sunt jam vincula
Tui sacrati corporis:
Nos solve vinclis sæculi,
Dono superni Numinis.
- Deo Patri sit gloria,
Ej usque soli Filio,
Cum Spiritu Paraclito,
Nunc, et per omne sæculum.
- Martyr of God, whose strength was steeled
To follow close God’s only Son,
Well didst thou brave thy battlefield,
And well thy heavenly bliss was won!
- Now join thy prayers with ours, who pray
That God may pardon us and bless;
For prayer keeps evil’s plague away,
And draws from life its weariness.
- Long, long ago, were loosed the chains
That held thy body once in thrall;
For us how many a bond remains!
O love of God release us all.
- All praise to God the Father be,
All praise to Thee, Eternal Son;
All praise, O Holy Ghost, to Thee,
While never-ending ages run.
