Nil Laudibus Nostras Eges

This hymn was used for Lauds on Mondays in Ordinary Time in the Paris Breviary (1736).

Nil laudibus nostris eges,
Sed filios amas, Pater;
Multaque cælestem prece
Vis provocari gratiam.

Tui profunda consili
Noctis canat silentium:
Tuæ iubar clementiæ
Splendor diei prædicat.

Tantis minor miraculis
Mens obstupet, vox deficit:
Tacere sed totis nequit
Amor medullis æstuans.

Erumpat ergo: te memor
Clamet parentem, qui mala
Præsentis ævi mitigas,
Spondes futuri præmia.

Huc vota tendunt cordium;
Infirma sed tardat caro:
Quæ ducit ad te, da sequi,
Dux ipse Iesu, semitam. Amen.

Words: Fr. Charles Coffin, 1736.
Tune: Unknown
Meter: 88.88
