Cælitum Consors Patriaeque Vindex

This hymn was used for Vespers I & Nocturns for the Feast of St. Genevieve (January 3) in the Paris Breviary(1736).

Cælitum consors, patriæque vindex,
Prosperum Francis iubar‚ o tuorum
Vota supremi,Genovefa, perfer
Regis ad aurem.

Cuius æternis opulenta donis
Sponsa, cælestes thalamos adisti,
Dum suo numquam caritura lampas
Ardet olivo.

Primus ætatis superante captum,
Impetu gliscens pietatis ardor
Imbuit pectus, tenerisque raptim
Crevit ab annis.

Quid dapis parcum laticisque corpus
Eloquar, duro domitum cubili,
Sæре et insomnes solitum precando
Ducere noctes.

Quam tuis, virgo, precibus remotæ:
Obtinent gentes, patriæ salutem
Confer, offensi tumidasque flecte
Numinis iras.

Nostra te summum celebrent Parentem
Ora, te summo Genitum Parente:
Par sit amborum tibi laus per omne,
Spiritus, ævum. Amen

Words: Fr. Denis Pétau, S.J., 17th C.
Tune: Unknown
Meter: 11.11.11.5
