Breviary Hymns and Missal Sequences, Saint Peter’s Chains, Matins

What thou shalt bind, O Peter, on this earth,
That shalt be bound within the starry sphere,
And that in highest Heaven shall be loosed,
Which thou, by power bestowed, dost loosen here;
To judge the world, one day thou shalt appear.

To God the Father glory without end,
And let us sing Thy noble eulogy,
Eternal Son, and glory too and praise
Be paid, O Heavenly Spirit, unto Thee,
And be for ever praised the Trinity. Amen.

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