Vestro Principi divino

Language: Latin

Vestro Principi divino
portas aureas coeli extollite.

Resurgenti et uno et trino
voces laudis astra extollite.

O felix culpa, o culpa fortunata
quae talem meruit ac tantum
habere Redemptorem.
Mundo est orta per te salus et quies,
et refulsit per te sic fausta dies.

Quid loqueris ad cor,
o novum cor in me,
si gaudes intra te
de bene gesta re
otiosa non sit spes.

Sed currat cor et pes
ubi serena fax,
ubi tranquilla lux,
ubi secura pax
regnare facit nos.

Dolores, poenae
suaves et amoenae,
deliciae Filii Dei,
laetitiae cordis mei,
non amo, laudo vos.
