HYMNUS SANCTO VIGILIO

Gaudio summo celebrare festa
Tribue nobis, martyr o beate,
Quæ tu sacrasti meritis beatis,
Sancte Vigili.

Te, pater, terra edidit Romana,
Cujus præclara jam fulgebant acta,
Dura puerilis hauriebat ætas
Teneros annos.

Literis sacris animus divinis
Inhærens semper, exsul adventabas
Urbem antiquam: studiis præclaram,
Atheniensem.

Inde ad terram rediens paternam
Ornabas sancta disciplina vitam
Quam in multorum spiritalis vitæ
Spargebas usus.

Cujus doctrina hæc gens primum docta,
meruit talem habere pastorem,
Per quem multorum signa declarantur
miraculorum.

Surdis auditum, cæcis præstat visum,
Debiles sanat dæmonesque fugat
Et peccatorum veniam petentes
Audit benignus.

Hunc hæc plebs cuncta voce laudans alta,
Supplex precetur veniam delictis,
Ut prosit nobis ejus interventus
Nunc et in ævum.

Præstet hoc nobis deitatis auctor,
Pater æternus, trinus atque unus,
Regnans ubique totus sine fine
Perpetim.

Amen.
