O Stella Iacob Fulgida

This hymn is used for Matins on the Feast of the Purity of the Blessed Virgin Mary. This feast day is not included in the Roman Breviary of 1960 (Extraordinary Form) or the present Liturgy of Hours (Ordinary Form). According to Fr. Caswall, it is the 3rd Sunday in October.

O Stella Iacob fulgida,
O solis instar splendida,
Aurora qua nil purius
Refulget inter sidera.

Stolis amictæ candidis
Tibi catervæ cælitun
Plaudunt, sacræque Virgines
Laudes perennes concinunt.

Quin obsequentes offerunt
Ligustra, et alba lilia:
Candor sed horum vincitur
Candore casti pectoris.

Nostra Angelorun laudibus
Abiecta tellus assonans
Ad astra voces efferat
Et Virginis præconia.

Iesu tibi sit gloria,
Qui natus es de Virgine,
Cum Patre, et almo Spiritu
ln Sempiterna Sæcula. Amen.
