Matris Sub Almæ Numine

This hymn is used for Vespers on the Feast of The Seven Holy Founders in the Extraordinary Form.

Matris sub almæ numine
Septena proles nascitur:
Ipsa vocante, ad arduum
Tendit Senari verticem.

Quos terra fructus proferet
Dum sacra proles germinat,
Uvis repente turgidis
Onusta vitis præmonet.

Virtute claros nobili
Mors sancta cælo consecrat:
Tenent olympi limina
Servi fideles Virginis.

Cohors beata Numinis
Regno potita respice
Quos hinc recedens fraudibus
Cinctos relinquis hostium.

Ergo, per almæ vulnera
Matris rogamus supplices,
Mentis tenebras disiice,
Cordis procellas comprime.

Tu nos, beata Trinitas,
Perfunde sancto robore,
Possimus ut feliciter
Exempla patrum subsequi. Amen.

Words: Vincent Tarozzi, 19th C.
