(Supernæ matris gaudia)
No languor, no old age they know,
The citizens Angelical,
Unfaltering they fix their glance
The Fathers ranged on either hand,
The Saints of God, whose high estate
Us, by Thy Church Triumphant's prayer,
(Magnus Dominus.) FOR WHIT-SUNDAY.
GREAT is the Lord! Let the watchword be given,
Clear from thy ramparts, O city of peace; One to another, in earth as in Heaven,
Pass the Hosanna that never shall cease.
Fair to the eye is that beautiful city,
Fair in her glory, and fair in her doom ; Lovely she lay in the light of His pity,
Whose tears were the dew of her fast-closing gloom.
