Davidis Soboles Gloria Virginum

This hymn was used as the hymn for Vespers for the Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary on Saturday in the Paris Breviary (1736).

Davidis soboles, gloria virginum
Christi Virgo parens, te posuit Deus
Partu virgineo quæ male subdoli
Anguis contereres caput.

Rebus principium qui dedit omnibus,
A te principium sumpsit homo Deus:
Cunctis prospiciens qui tribuit cibos,
Pastus lacte fuit tuo.

Per te quod mulier perdiderat vetus,
Humano generi redditur auctius:
Tu clausas miseris, heu nimium diu!
Cælorum reseras fores.

Qui lucis pater est, gloria sit Patri’
Cuius Virgo parens, gloria Filio;
Quo fœcunda, tibi nexus amabilis,
Sit par gloria, Spiritus. Amen.

Words: Ursulines of Orthez, 18th C.
Tune: Unknown.
Meter: 12.12.12.8
