Cælo Redemptor Prætulit

This hymn is used for Matins on the Feast of the Maternity of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the Extraordinary Form.

Cælo Redemptor prætulit
Felicis alvum Virginis,
Ubi futura victima
Mortale corpus induit.

Hæc Virgo nobis edidit
Nostræ salutis auspicem,
Qui nos redemit sanguine,
Pœnas crucemque pertulit.

Spes læta nostro e pectore
Pellat timores anxios:
Hæc quippe nostras lacrimas
Precesque defert Filio.

Voces Parentis excipit,
Votisque Natus annuit:
Hanc quisque semper diligat,
Rebusque in arctis invocet.

Sit Trinitati gloria,
Quæ Matris intactum sinum
Ditavit almo germine,
Laus sit per omne sæculum. Amen.

Words: Anonymous Latin, 18th C.
