Text of Lauda 37

Ciascun ke fede sente

vegn'a laudar sovente

l'alto sant' Antonio beato

 

Ciascun laudare et amare

lo dea de buon coragio,

ké' de ben fare sé forçare

volse piccolo etagio.

tutt'ore pensare formare

com'a Dio fare humagio

potesse, d'Ulisbona si parte,

se consuma legenda,

là unde fo nato.

 

Ciascun ke fede sente

vegn'a laudar sovente

l'alto sant' Antonio beato

 

In grande amore, di core

Dio l'ebbe omnipotente,

k'el fece doctore, victore,

del faro providente:

e dieli kiarore splendore

de vedere veramente

la soma deitade nella grande infertade

de la quale passò e'l glorificato.

 

Ciascun ke fede sente

vegn'a laudar sovente

l'alto sant' Antonio beato

 

Sia gloriata, laudata

l'altissima maiestà;

ringratiata orrata, [orata?]

ke del mond'è podesta,

de la beata ornate [ornata?]

virgo nato con festa.

Lui cum gran di humilitança

dimandiam perdonança

ke al iudicio si dal directo lato.

 

Ciascun ke fede sente

vegn'a laudar sovente

l'alto sant' Antonio beato.

Amen.

 

 

 

Let every one who senses faith

come often to praise

the great saint, blessed Anthony.

 

Everyone should praise and adore him

for his great courage,

who resolved to live a life of doing good

from a young age.

All the time he thought about

how he could pay homage to God,

and he departed from Lisbon,

where he was born -

if the story is to be believed.

 

Let every one who senses faith

come often to praise

the great saint, blessed Anthony.

 

In his great love,

God was omnipotent in his heart,

and made him a doctor, a victor,

a provider of food:

and God gave him the shining clarity

to see truly

the highest godhead in his great affliction

through which he suffered and was glorified.

 

Let every one who senses faith

come often to praise

the great saint, blessed Anthony.

 

May his highest majesty

be glorified and praised,

thanked and raised in prayer,

who is the power of the world,

born of the blessed virgin

with celebration.

Let us ask pardon,

with great humility,

of him who faced our judgment for us.

 

Let every one who senses faith

come often to praise

the great saint, blessed Anthony.

Amen.
