Iste Confessor (ROUEN)


From the Common of Pastors
Holy confessor of the Lord eternal,
whose feast the people through the earth are singing,
joyfully merits to ascend in triumph
to hidden heavens

Righteous and prudent, humble, chaste, and sober,
calm through the hours and days of earthly living,
such was his manner while the mortal spirit
livened his members.

So now our chorus on this day sings gladly,
chanting this hymn of praises in his honor,
that by his merits we may be supported
throughout the ages.

To Him be strength and honor and salvation
who dwells above the highest peaks of heaven,
God, one and triune, governing the vastness
Of the creation.
