Plenis Resultet Vocibus

This hymn is used for Lauds for the Common of more than One Confessor who is a Bishop in the Extraordinary Form. 

Plenis resultet vocibus
Laetum diei canticum:
Ad lucis ortum, concinat
Chorus beatos Praesules.

En pro gregis custodia
Nullos labores neglegunt,
Tutuantur illum, sanius
Impertientes pabulum.

Arcent lupos, e finibus
Procul latrones exigunt,
Replent oves pinguedine,
Ovile nunquam deserunt.

Tot nunc potiti gaudiis,
O vos, sacrati Praesules,
Nobis rogate gratiam
Apud tribunal iudicis.

Perpes tibi laus, gloria
Sit, Christe, Rex piissime,
Cum Patre et almo Spiritu
Regnans per omne saeculum. Amen.

I have been unable as yet to determine the author, date or tune for this hymn. The Breviary of 1960 notes that the hymns in the section of the Common of Saints are in accord with a decree of the Congregation of Sacred Rites of 22 May, 1914.

So far as I can tell, there’s no English translation of this hymn extant.
