Celsa pueri

Layer Antiphonal
Fulltext Celsa pueri concrepent melodia
Pia innocentum canentes tripudia
Quos infans Christus hodie vexit ad astra
Hos trucidavit frendens insania
Herodis fraudis ob nulla crimina
In Bethleem ipsius cuncta et per confinia
A bimatu et infra iuxta nascendi tempora
Herodes rex Christi nati verens infelix imperia
Infremit totus et erigit arma superba dextera
Quaerit lucis et caeli regem cum mente turbida
Ut extinguat qui vitam praestat per sua iacula
Dum non valent intueri lucem splendidam nebulosa quaerentis pectora
Ira fervet fraudes auget Herodes saevus ut perdat piorum agmina
Castra militum dux iniquus aggregat ferrum figit in membra tenera
Inter ubera lac effudit antequam sanguinis fierent coagula
Hostis naturae natos eviscerat atque iugulat
Ante prosternit quam aetas parvula sumat robora
Quam beata sunt innocentum ab Herode caesa corpuscula
Quam felices existunt matres quae fuderunt talia pignora
O dulces innocentum acies O pia lactentum pro Christo certamina
Parvorum trucidantur milia membris ex teneris manant lactis flumina
Cives angelici veniunt in obviam mira victoria vitae captat praemia turba candidissima
Te Christe petimus mente devotissima nostra qui venisti reformare saecula innocentum gloria
Perfrui nos concedas per aeterna
