Jesus I Trust in You – from the Mundelein Psalter

From the Mundelein Psalter:

for post on hymn from the mundelein psalterThe morn had spread her crimson rays,
When range the skies with shouts of praise;
Earth joined the joyful hymn to swell,
That brought despair to vanquished hell.
He comes victorious from the grave,
The Lord omnipotent to save,
And brings with him to light of day
The Saints who long imprisoned lay.
Vain is the cavern's threefold ward–
The stone, the seal the armed guard;
O death, no more thine arm we fear,
The Victor's tomb is now thy bier.
Enough of death, enough of tears,
Enough of sorrows and of fears!
O hear yon white-robed angel cry,
Death's Conqueror lives, no more to die.
Grant, Lord, in thee each faithful mind
Unceasing Paschal joy may find;
And from the death of sin set free
Souls newly born to life by thee.
To thee, once dead, who now dost live,
All glory, Lord, thy people give,
Whom with the Father we adore,
And Holy Ghost for evermore. Amen.

Hymn from the Mundelein Psalter … which contains translations of hymns proper to each ferial day and a selection of hymns for feasts and solemnities (taken from the editio typica).
