Breviary Hymns and Missal Sequences, Common of One Martyr, Lauds

Unconquered Martyr, who the steps
Didst follow of God’s Only Son,
Thou triumphest o’er conquered foes,
And hast, as Victor, Heaven won.

Do thou, with efficacious prayer,
Cleanse from our souls their sinful stains,
Defend us from contagious ills,
And keep from us life’s weary pains.

Thy sacred body’s bonds are burst,
From mortal life thou art set free,
O free us from all earthly bonds,
By favour of the Deity.

To God the Father glory be,
And also to His Only Son,
With the Great Spirit Paraclete,
Now, and while endless ages run. Amen.

– translated by Archbishop Edward Gilpin Bagshawe, C.O., Bishop of Nottingham, England
