TU CHRISTE, NOSTRUM GAUDIUM


1 Tu, Christe, nostrum gaúdium,
Manens olýmpo praéditum,
Mundi regis gui fábricam,
Mundána vincens gaúdia.

O Christ, Thou art our joy alone,
Exalted on Thy glorious throne:
To Thee all pow'r in earth and heav'n
As victor o'er the world is giv'n.
2 Hinc te precántes quaésumus,
Ignósce culpis ómnibus,
Et corda sursum súbleva
Ad te supérna grátia.

We suppliants, therefore, ask of Thee
To pardon our iniquity:
And lift up ev'ry Christian heart
By grace to find Thee where Thou art.
3 Tu esto nostrum gaúdium,
Qui es futúrus praémium;
Sit nostra in te glória
Per cuncta semper saécula.

Be Thou our joy, and Thou our guard,
As Thou wilt be our great reward:
So shall the lifht that springs from Thee
Be ours through all eternity.
