Fando Quis Audivit Dei

This hymn was used for Vespers I for Passion Sunday & Palm Sunday  in the Paris Breviary (1736).

Fando quis audivit, Dei
Quis grande dicat brachium?
Perculsa mens confunditur;
Stupet fides, vox deficit.

Ab orbe, Iesu, condito
Occisus Agnus, nunc Patri
Priscis adumbratam sacris
Ardes litare victimam.

At cur humi stratus iaces?
Quis iste mœrentis pavor?
Quis iste qui toto fluit
Sudor cruentus corpore?

Hunc vis doloris exprimit,
Horrorque teter criminum:
Vices nocentum sustinens,
Iram reformidas Patris.

Te terret obiectus calix:
At ille, ni totum bibas,
Per sempiterna nos manet
Exhauriendus sæcula.

Vincet pavorem caritas;
Vincet voluntas patria:
Temet potestati, Deus,
Tradis tenebrarum volens.

Et iam flagellis, ictibus,
Ludibriis, spinis, cruci,
Piacularis hostia,
Voves adorandum caput.

Qui Filium tradit, Patri,
Natoque sit laus victimæ;
Par sit tibi laus, qui sacram
Succendis aram, Spiritus.  Amen.

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

Meter: 88.88
