Non Vana Dilectum Gregem

This hymn was used as the hymn for Lauds for the Common of Virgins when not a Martyr in the Paris Breviary (1736).

Non vana dilectum gregem
Pavere mundi gaudia,
Nec pura fallax pectora
Imago lusit sæculi.

Sed hæc tuarum propria
Sunt, Christe, sponsarum bona,
Te semper, et tecum tuis
In te potiri gaudiis.

Castis vicissim tu tibi
In cordibus thorum struis:
Interque flammas intimo
Amans quiescis in sinu.

Hic unus est sponsis amor,
Unusque tecum spiritus;
Beasque sponsus singulas,
In teque transformas, Deus.

Te deprecamur supplices,
Nostris ut addas sensibus,
Nescire prorsus omnia
Corruptionis vulnera.

Sit laus Patri, laus Filio:
Sit par tibi laus, Spiritus,
Divina qui perennibus
Firmas sigillis fœdera. Amen.

Words: Bishop Guillaume de La Brunetière du Plessis-Gesté, 17th C.
Tune: Unknown.
Meter: 88.88
