Supplex Sacramus Canticum

This hymn is used for Vespers I & II and Lauds for the Second Sunday after the Epiphany in which is celebrated the Most Holy Name of Jesus in the Ambrosian Breviary.

Supplex sacramus canticum
Divino Iesu nomini,
Quod astra, terræ et inferi
Laudant, adorant et tremunt.

Nomen salutis nuntium
Supra omne nomen prominens,
Fons vitæ, origo gratiæ,
Cælestis arrha gloriæ.

O melle Nomen dulcius,
Quod corde et ore personans,
Curas, dolores, dæmones
Mulcet, retundit, dissipat.

Hoc Nomen invocantibus
Sit iuge nobis gaudium,
Vitæ laborem temperans,
Mortis timorem diluens.

Iesu, tuo sit Nomini
Cum Patre et Almo Spiritu,
Regnans piis in cordibus,
Æterna laus et gloria. Amen.

Words: Ambrosian Breviary, 1830*.
