  Te gestiéntem gáudiis
Latin lyrics Literal English translation
Te gestiéntem gáudiis
Te sáuciam dolóribus,
Te jugi amíctam glória
O Virgo Mater, pángimus.

Ave, redúndans gáudio
Dum cóncipis, dum vísitas;
Et edis, offers, ínvenis,
Mater beáta, Fílium.

Ave, dolens, et íntimo
In corde agónem, vérbera,
Spinas, Crucémque
Fílii Perpéssa, princeps, Mártyrum.

Ave, in triúmphis Fílii,
In ígnibus Parácliti,
In regni honóre et lúmine,
Regína fulgens glória.

Veníte, gentes, cárpite
Ex his rosas mystériis,
Et pulchri amóris ínclytæ
Matri corónas néctite.

Jesu, tibi sit glória,
Qui natus es de Vírgine,
Cum Patre, et almo Spíritu,
In sempitérna sæcula.

Virgin Mother, of thee we sing
Telling the joys thy Child did bring,
The woes that pierced thy heart so sore,
The glory that hath clothed thee o'er.

Hail! joyous blessed Mother one
Who did conceive so great a Son,
Did visit with Him, gave Him birth,
Offered Him, found Him, here on earth.

Hail! chief of martyrs, in thy heart
Bearing, as't were thine own, the smart
Of thy Son's agony, the blows,
The thorns, the cross He undergoes!

Hail, queen! thou dost in glory shine;
Thy Son's triumphal days are thine;
The Spirit's fires thy soul delight;
Thine is the heavenly realm so bright!

O come, ye peoples, gather ye
Roses from every mystery!
Weave ye your crowns to praise above
The glorious Mother of fair love.

Glory, O Lord, be given to Thee,
Who of a Virgin deigned'st to be :
May the same praise for ever greet
The Father and the Paraclete.

All my favorite hymns. Most of them are from before the Reformation.
