O Ildephonse, a 8

In festo S. Ildefonsi [1600a]
Cramer: 
PH169

Text

O Ildefonse,
per te Domina mea viuit,
quae caeli culmina tenet
et ab ipsa vestem, caelestem,
de tesauriis fili eius
Angelicis manibus praeparatam suscepisti,
quam defendendo eius virginitatem,
virgo meruisti. Alleluia.
 
[1600a]

Translation

O Ildephonsus, my Lady,
who holds the summits of heaven,
lives through you.
From her you received the holy garment
from her son's storehouses,
which was made by the hands of angels.
You deserved this, O virgin saint,
because you defended her virginitiy.
 
Alleluia.
 
[Translation: Nancho Álvarez]
