Parata Cum Te Poscerent

This hymn was used as the hymn for Lauds on the Solemnity of the Assumption in the Paris Breviary (1736 Edition).

Parata cum te poscerent,
O Virgo, cæli præmia ,
Purum sacratis artubus
Amor resolvit spiritum.

Sed victa partu mors tuo,
Te labis expertem nequit,
Suis nec audet stringere
Vitæ parentem nexibus.

O qualis inter obvios
Regina scandit cælites!
Quam pulchra, celsæ proxima
Sedi Tonantis assidet!

Amicta sole femina,
Lunamque subiectam premens,
Bissena cui cingunt caput
Fulgore miro sidera.

O tu, clientum cui preces,
Cui vota cordi, Iudicem
Præbere nobis, quod potes,
Patrona, placatum velis.

Sit nostra per te laus Patri,
Tuoque grata Filio,
Et utriusque Flamini,
In sæculorum sæcula. Amen.

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