Special Doxolgies For Breviary Hymns

Fr. Britt provides a list of the special doxologies used in the Breviary hymns for various seasons of the Church year in his book. The entire section with his explanation, the Latin text and an English translation is presented here below:

Special doxologies are provided in the Breviary for certain feasts and seasons. They are all written in iambic dimeters, and they replace the ordinary doxologies in all hymns of the same meter.

The following doxology is said from Christmas till the Epiphany, during the Octave of Corpus Christi, on the feasts of the Sacred Heart and Holy Name, and on feasts of the Blessed Virgin and during their Octaves.
Iesu, tibi sit gloria,
Qui natus es de Virgine,
Cum Patre, et almo Spiritu,
In sempiterna saecula.

All honor, laud, and glory be,
O Jesu, Virgin-born, to Thee;
All glory, as is ever meet,
To Father and to Paraclete.

For the Epiphany and Octave
Iesu, tibi sit gloria,
Qui apparuisti gentibus,
Cum Patre, et almo Spiritu,
In sempiterna saecula.

All glory, Lord, to Thee we pay,
For Thine Epiphany to-day;
All glory, as is ever meet,
To Father and to Paraclete.

In Paschaltime
Deo Patri sit gloria,
Et Filio, qui a mortuis
Surrexit, ac Paraclito,
In sempiterna saecula.

To Thee who, dead, again dost live,
All glory, Lord, Thy people give;
All glory, as is ever meet,
To Father and to Paraclete.

For Ascensiontide
Iesu, tibi sit gloria,
Qui victor in caelum redis,
Cum Patre, et almo Spiritu,
In sempiterna saecula.

All Glory, Lord, to Thee we pay.
Ascending o’er the stars to-day;
All glory, as is ever meet,
To Father and to Paraclete.
