TE GESTIENTEM GAUDIIS


1 Te gestiéntem gáudiis
Te sáuciam dolóribus,
Te jugi amíctam glória
O Virgo Mater, pángimus.
Virgin Mother, of thee we sing / Telling the joys thy Child did bring, / The woes that pierced thy heart so sore, / The glory that hath clothed thee o'er.
2 Ave, redúndans gáudio
Dum cóncipis, dum vísitas;
Et edis, offers, ínvenis,
Mater beáta, Fílium.
Hail! joyous blessed Mother one / Who did conceive so great a Son, / Did visit with Him, gave Him birth, / Offered Him, found Him, here on earth.
3 Ave, dolens, et íntimo
In corde agónem, vérbera,
Spinas, Crucémque Fílii
Perpéssa, princeps, Mártyrum.
Hail! chief of martyrs, in thy heart / Bearing, as't were thine own, the smart / Of thy Son's agony, the blows, / The thorns, the cross He undergoes!
4 Ave, in triúmphis Fílii,
In ígnibus Parácliti,
In regni honóre et lúmine,
Regína fulgens glória.
Hail, queen! thou dost in glory shine; / Thy Son's triumphal days are thine; / The Spirit's fires thy soul delight; / Thine is the heavenly realm so bright!
5 Veníte, gentes, cárpite
Ex his rosas mystériis,
Et pulchri amóris ínclytæ
Matri corónas néctite.
O come, ye peoples, gather ye / Roses from every mystery! / Weave ye your crowns to praise above / The glorious Mother of fair love.
6 Jesu, tibi sit glória,
Qui natus es de Vírgine,
Cum Patre, et almo Spíritu,
In sempitérna sæcula.
Glory, O Lord, be given to Thee, / Who of a Virgin deigned'st to be : / May the same praise for ever greet / The Father and the Paraclete.
** Amen. Amen.
