Clarae stellae, scintillate

Language: Latin

Clarae stellae, scintillate
et splendorem novum date
huius diei tanto fulgori.

Mundus vivat in laetitias
et mox habeat suas delicias
tantae pompae suo decori.

Coeli repleti iam novo splendore
plaudunt in tanta die,
et simul terra arridit tota
in tam solemni pompa.
Dum festum celebratur
almae Visitationis
gaudeat etiam cor meum
Mariam laudando et collaudando Deum.

Nunc iubilare,
semper laetare
gaudio immenso
anima mea.

Et sit tibi iubilando,
et sit tibi memorando
mundi et cordis alma spes.

Si non es laetitia plena
tantae pompae aura serena
sit dulcedo tuae maestitiae,
et in te solum sint mille deliciae.

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive was supported financially last year by about 0.03% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
