Text and translations
Si quaeris miracula,
Mors, error calamitas,
Daemon, lepra fugiunt,
Aegri surgunt sani.
Ant: Cedunt mare, vincula:
Membra resque, perditas
Petunt et accipiunt
Iuvenes et cani.
cessat et necessitas:
narrent hi qui sentiunt,
Gloria Patri et Filio, et Spiritui Sancto.
If, then, thou seekest miracles,
Death, error, all calamities,
The leprosy and demons flee,
The sick, by him made whole, arise.
Ant: The sea withdraws and fetters break,
And withered limbs he doth restore,
While treasures lost are found again,
When young or old his help implore.
Necessity is no more:
Those who feel are told
the opinion of the Paduans.(??)
The sea withdraws…
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.
And withered limbs…
