Corpus Domas Ieiuniis

This hymn is used for Matins on the Feast of St. John Cantius (of Kenty) in the Extraordinary Form.

Corpus domas ieiuniis,
Cædis cruento verbere,
Ut castra pœnitentium
Miles sequaris innocens.

Sequamur et nos sedulo
Gressus parentis optimi:
Sequamur, ut licentiam
Carnis refrænet spiritus.

Rigente bruma providum
Præbes amictum pauperi,
Sitim famemque egentium
Esca potuque sublevas.

O qui negasti nemini
Opem roganti, patrium
Regnum tuere, postulant
Cives Poloni et exteri.

Sit laus Patri, sit Filio,
Tibique, Sancte Spiritus:
Preces Ioannis impetrent
Beata nobis gaudia. Amen.

Words: Anonymous Latin, 18th C.
