Prome Commissas Tibi Petre Claves

This hymn was used for Vespers II for the Feast of the Chair of St. Peter (January 18 at that time) in the Paris Breviary(1736).

Prome commissas tibi, Petre, claves:
(Nam tibi tradit sua iura Christus:)
Quæ polum claudunt, scelerum, precamur,
Vincula solve.

Prima te sedes Orientis oris
Extulit: cunas ibi Christianum
Obtinet nomen: simul inde toto
Spargitur orbe.

Roma mox sortis melioris hæres,
Extitit mundi fideique centrum,
Quam tuo, Pastor pariterque martyr,
Sanguine claras.

Qui fidem Petro stabilem rogasti,
Ne sinas, Iesu, titubare nostram:
Vita fac concors fidei sit omen
Dulce salutis.

Lætus æternum celebret Parentem
Orbis; æternum celebret Parentis
Filium: par sit tibi laus per omne,
Spiritus, ævum. Amen.

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