Te Deprecante, Corporum

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

Te deprecante, corporum
Lues recedit, improbi
Morbi fugantur, pristina
Redeunt salutis munera.

Phthisi, febrique, et ulcere
Diram redactos ad necem,
Sacratas morti victimas,
Eius rapis e faucibus.

Te deprecante, tumido
Merces abactæ flumine,
Tractæ Dei potentia
Sursum fluunt retrogradæ.

Cum tanta possis, sedibus
Cæli locatus, poscimus:
Responde votis supplicum,
Et invocatus subveni.

O una semper Trinitas,
O trina semper Unitas:
Da, supplicante Cantio,
Æterna nobis præmia. Amen.

Words: Anonymous Latin, 18th C.
