JESUS, THE WORLD’S REDEEMER, HEAR (HYMN)

11 Nov
JESUS, THE WORLD’S REDEEMER, HEAR (HYMN)

Jesu, the world’s Redeemer, hear,

Thy Bishops’ fadeless crown, draw near:

Accept with gentlest love today

The prayers and praises that we pay.

 

The meek Confessor of thy Name

Today attained a glorious fame;

Whose yearly feast, in solemn state,

Thy faithful people celebrate.

 

The world and all its boasted good,

As vain and passing, he eschewed;

And therefore with Angelic bands,

In endless joy forever stands.

 

Grant then that we, most gracious God,

May follow in the steps he trod:

And, at his prayer, thy servants free

From stain of all iniquity.

 

To thee, O Christ, our loving King,

All glory, praise, and thanks we bring:

All glory, as is ever meet,

To Father and to Paraclete. Amen.

– From: An Approved English Translation

of the Breviarium Romanum,

Burns & Oates, London, 1964
