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

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

PRAYER TO ST MARTIN OF TOURS (ST MARTIN CABALLERO)

Dear St Martin, you were first a soldier like your father. Converted to the Church, you became a soldier of Christ, a priest and then a Bishop of Tours. Lover of the poor, and model for pagans and Christians alike, protect our soldiers at all times. Make them strong, just and charitable, always aiming at establishing peace on earth. Amen.
