Breviary Hymns and Missal Sequences, Stigmata of Saint Francis, Vespers

All hail, ye sacred Stigmata!
Which love supreme to Francis gave,
And which upon his heart and limbs
It had the power to engrave.

Do you fix deep within our hearts
The Wounds of Christ, and His dear love,
And bring us to Him at the last,
In our true Fatherland above.

Who art revealed to little ones,
O Jesus, glory be to Thee,
With Father and with Holy Ghost
Ever through all Eternity. Amen.

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