Per S. Antonio
Originally for Soprano and basso continuo.
Original Language: Latin

Iubilemus exultemus,
diem festum celebremus
in honorem Sancti Antoni.

Cantate pueri reviviscentes,
psallite socii cœlo studentes,
canite Virgine Christo nubentes,
iubilate milites fidem tuentes.

A patre luminum Divus Antonius
qui pater omnibus diva sequentibus
fulget miraculis.
Date voces organa, citharizate
cithare in voce tubæ corneæ,
omnes gentes modulamini.
Antonium deprecamini
dum festum eius agitis.

Cantate pueri...
Iubilemus exultemus...


Let us rejoice

For Saint Anthony

Let us rejoice, let us exult,
let us celebrate the feast day
in honor of Saint Anthony.

Sing in celebration, lively young boys,
sing psalms, companions who strive for heaven,
sing, virgins betrothed to Christ,
rejoice, soldiers guarding the faith.

Divine Anthony shines with miracles
from the father of heavenly lights,
who is father to all who follow what is sacred.
Give forth voices with organ,
citharae, and horn,
let all nations make melody.
Pray to Anthony
as you celebrate his feast day.
