fiducialiter sperans per hoc posse me absque dubio\ liberari. Ergo piissime domine qui omnes claman\tes et in te sperantes exaudis me quoque peccato\rem exaudi et secundum magnam misericordiam tuam si\cut vis et sicut scis reminiscere mei et dimit\te michi omnia peccata mea et tribue graciam tuam quam\ michi ubique committas et conserves et libera me ab\ omnibus malis et ad vitam digneris perducere sem\piternam. Qui vivis, et regnas.\

Hymn, Iuste iudex Ihesu.



A hymn to Jesus (RH, 1, p 599). The author asks Christ, who redeemed mankind through his blood, to protect him from danger and the plots of his enemies.


Iuste iudex Ihesu Christe regum rex et domine.
Qui cum pa\tre regnas et cum sancto flamine
nunc digneris pre\ces meas clementer suscipere.

Tu de celis descen\disti virginis in uterum
unde sumens veram car\nem visitasti seculum
tuum plasma redimendo\ sanguinem per proprium.

Illa queso deus meus\ gloriosa passio
me defendat incessanter ab omni\ periculo
ut valeam permanere in tuo sancto servi\cio.

Assit michi tua virtus semper et defensio,
men\tem meam ne perturbet hostium inclusio,
ne damp\netur corpus meum fraudulenti laqueo.\

Dextera forti qua fregisti atherunti [Acherontis] ianu-\
