Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

In caelesti hierarchia
nova sonet harmonia
novo ducta cantico

cui concordet in hac via,
nostri chori melodia,
congaudens Dominico.

Ex Aegypto vastitatis
virum sumae voluntatis
vocat auctor saeculi

In fiscela paupertabis
flumen transit vanitatis
pro salute populi

In figura Catuli
praedicator saeculi
Matri praemonstratur

Portans ore faculam,
ad amoris regulam,
populos hortatur

Hic est novus legislator,
hic Elias aemulator
et detestans crimina.

Vulpes dissipat Sampsonis
et in tuba Gedeonis
hostis fugat agmina.

Hic est novus legislator,
Hic Elias aemulator
et detestans crimina

A defunctis revocatum,
matri vivum reddit natum
vivens adhuc corpore,

Signo crucis imber cedit,
turba fratrum panem edit
missum Dei munere.

Felix per quem gaudia,
tota iam ecclesia
sumens exaltatur,

Orbem replet semine
in caelorum agmine
tandem colocatur.

Aegri currunt et curantur,
caeci, claudi reparantur,
virtutum frequentia.

Laudes ergo Dominico
personemus mirifico,
voce plena

Clama petens suffragia,
eius sequens vestigia,
plebs egena, plebs egena.

apud curiam summi regis,
derelicti vices gregis
commenda per saecula,
amen.
