Egregie Doctor Paule
Our souls’ great Teacher, Paul
Meter as in the preceding hymn.
Translation by Father Potter.
Liturgical Use: Hymn for
Vespers and Matins on the Feast of the Conversion of St.
- Egregie Doctor Paule mores instrue,
Et nostra tecum pectora in cœlum trahe:
Velata dum meridiem cernat fides,
Et solis instar sola regnet caritas.
- Sit Trinitati sempiterna gloria,
Honor, potestas, atque jubilation,
In unitate, quæ gubernat omnia,
Per universa æternitatis sæcula.
- Our souls’ great Teacher, Paul, our guide in wisdom’s ways,
Teach us, our fainting hearts, to heaven’s glad clime to raise,
Till Faith in clearest light her bright meridian gains,
And Love with sun-like fire within each bosom reigns.
- All honor, might, and power, and hymns of joy we bring,
While to the Trinity eternal praise we sing:
He rules the universe in wondrous Unity,
And shall, thoughout the days of all eternity.
This hymn is the second stanza of the hymn for Lands
