PH169

Text


O Ildefonse,


per te Domina mea viuit,


quae caeli culmina tenet


et ab ipsa vestem, caelestem,


de tesauriis fili eius


Angelicis manibus praeparatam suscepisti,


quam defendendo eius virginitatem,


virgo meruisti. Alleluia.


 


[1600a]

Translation

O Ildephonsus, my Lady,


who holds the summits of heaven,


lives through you.


From her you received the holy garment


from her son's storehouses,


which was made by the hands of angels.


You deserved this, O virgin saint,


because you defended her virginitiy.


 


Alleluia.


 


[Translation: Nancho Álvarez]
