MEDIEVAL SEQUENCES AND HYMNS.

No VII.—FOR SAINTS' DAYS.

(Supernæ matris gaudia)
Set forth, O Church, exultingly
The joys of Salem throned on high ;
And keeping yearly holyday,
Long for the feast that lasts for aye.

[blocks in formation]

No languor, no old age they know,
No fraud, no terror of the foe;
But one the voice of them that sing,
One glow all hearts illumining.

The citizens Angelical,
In threefold hierarchy, all
Do homage with devotion high
To the One Trinal Sovereignty.

Unfaltering they fix their glance
On His unveiled countenance,
And Him insatiate adore,
Whom to enjoy they thirst the more.

The Fathers ranged on either hand,
According to their honour stand;
The mists of earth away are rolled,
And in His light they light behold.

The Saints of God, whose high estate
We here to-day commemorate,
Now face to face eternally
Their King in all His Beauty see.

Us, by Thy Church Triumphant's prayer,
Freed from this world of sin and care,
We pray Thee, bring to Thy reward,
Through the sole merits of our Lord.

Amen.

PSALM XLVIII.

(Magnus Dominus.) FOR WHIT-SUNDAY.

GREAT is the Lord! Let the watchword be given,

Clear from thy ramparts, O city of peace; One to another, in earth as in Heaven,

Pass the Hosanna that never shall cease.

Fair to the eye is that beautiful city,

Fair in her glory, and fair in her doom ; Lovely she lay in the light of His pity,

Whose tears were the dew of her fast-closing gloom.
