Te Mater Alma Numinis

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

Te, Mater alma Numinis,
Oramus omnes supplices,
A fraude nos ut dæmonis
Tua sub umbra protegas.

Ob perditum nostrum genus
Primi parentis crimine,
Ad inclitum Matris decus
Te Rex supremus extulit.

Clementer ergo prospice
Lapsis Adami posteris:
A te rogatus Filius
Deponat iram vindicem.

Iesu, tibi sit gloria,
Qui natus es de Vírgine,
Cum Patre et almo Spiritu,
In sempiterna sæcula. Amen.

Words: Anonymous Latin, 18th C.
