Lætare Cælum Plausibus

This hymn was used as the hymn for Vespers I in the Common of the Holy Apostles in the Paris Breviary (1736).

Lætare cælum; plausibus
Tellus resultet æmulis;
Apostolorum gloriam
Solemnis instaurat dies.

Vos, ceu tubis sonantibus,
Christum per orbem spargitis;
Vos illa sacris vatibus
Prædicta mundi lumina.

Qui, dante Christo, panditis,
Qui clauditis cæli fores,
Nos criminum tenacibus
Vinclis ligatos solvite.

Potente qui nutu graves
Morbos fugatis corporum,
Desideratam poscire
Ægris medelam moribus.

Sublimis ut cum venerit,
Vobis simul sedentibus,
Ad dexterum iudex latus
Nos inter agnos collocet.

Uni sit et trino Deo
Suprema laus, summum decus,
De nocte qui nos ad suæ
Lumen vocavit gloriæ. Amen.

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