Opprobriis Iesu Satur

This hymn was used for Nocturns for Passiontide  (Passion Week & Holy Week)  in the Paris Breviary (1736).

Opprobriis, Iesu, satur,
Ligni fatiscens pondere,
Ferale, verus Isaac,
Mactandus ascendis iugum.

Clavis statim trabalibus
Fixus manus, fixus pedes,
Sublime terris omnibus
Attolleris spectaculum.

In nos o ætemi Patris
Incomprehensa caritas!
Insons cruentæ Filius
Pro sontibus morti datur.

Illo lavari sanguine
Oportuit mundi scelus;
Talem severa Numinis
Poscebat ira victimam.

Crux debitæ nos vinculo
Damnationis eximit;
Et pacis æterno ligat
Terras polumque fœdere.

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
