Christi Miles Gloriosus

This hymn was used for Lauds on the feast of St. Vincent of Saragossa (Jan. 22) in the Sarum Breviary.

Christi miles Gloriosus
Levita Vincentius,
Ut tribunal sponte rogum
Conscendit intrepidus,
Cuius salis crepitantis
Per corpus minutiæ

Sparsim ibant, atque prunæ
Vernabantur sanguine;
Inter hæc manet immotus
Ille Dei famulus,
Orans Christum in sublime
Erectis luminibus.

Gloria et honor Deo
Usquequo Altissimo,
Una Patri Filioque
Inclito Paraclito,
Cui laus est et potestas
Per æterna sæcula. Amen.

Words: Anonymous, ca. 15th C.
Tune: Unknown.
