- Iste Confessor Domini colentes
Quem pie laudant populi per orbem:
Hac die lætus meruit beatas
- Qui pius, prudens, humilis, pudicus,
Sobriam duxit sine labe vitam,
Donee humanos animavit auræ
- Cujus ob præstans meritum frequenter,
Ægra quæ passim jacuere membra,
Viribus morbi domitis, saluti
- Noster hinc illi chorus obsequentem
Concinit laudem, celebresque palmas;
Ut piis ejus precibus juvemur
Omne per ævum.
- Sit salus illi, decus atque virtus,
Qui super cœli solio coruscans,
Totius mundi seriem gubernat
Trinus et unus.
- This the Confessor of the Lord, whose triumph
Now all the faithful celebrate, with gladness
Erst on this feast-day merited to enter
Into his glory.
- Saintly and prudent, modest in behavior,
Peaceful and sober, chaste was he, and lowly.
While that life s vigor, coursing through his members,
Quickened his being.
- Sick ones of old time, to his tomb resorting,
Sorely by ailments manifold afflicted,
Oft-times have welcomed health and strength returning,
At his petition.
- Whence we in chorus gladly do him honor,
Chanting his praises with devout affection,
That in his merits we may have a portion,
Now and forever.
- His be the glory, power and salvation,
Who over all things reigneth in the highest,
Earth’s might fabric ruling and directing,
Onely and Trinal.
