Qui Christiano Gloriantur Nomine

This hymn was used as the hymn for Vespers I & Nocturns on the Feast of St. Peter in Chains (August 1) in the Paris Breviary (1736 Edition).

Qui christiano gloriantur nomine,
Ahena frustra vincla captivos tenent;
Frustra satelles servat insomnis fores:
Inter catenas mente stant liberrima.

Ornant revinctos invidendæ compedes;
Nec ponderosæ, quas Amor leves facit:
Non densa tetri carceris nox obsidet,
Æterna summo quos manet cælo dies.

Dulces catenæ! quæ reum non arguunt,
Sed Christi amantem quæ probant Apostolum;
Regum coronis, aureis monilibus,
Vos sacra pluris æstimamus vincula.

Patri supremo sit suprema gloria,
Tibique laudes totus orbis concinat,
Æterne Fili, splendor æterni Patris:
Compar sit almo laus decusque Flamini. Amen.

Words: Fr. Jean-Baptiste de Santeul, 17th C.
Tune: Unknown
Meter: 12.12.12.12
