Now Let the Heav'ns Resound with Praise / Exsúltet Cælum Láudibus / Exsultet Orbis Gaudiis

He Sent Apostles in His Love

Now Let the Heav'ns Resound with Praise is a 1972 Peter J. Scagnelli S.J. (b. 1949) translation of the 10th century Latin hymn, Exultet Caelum Laudibus. In 1632, accordance with revisions made to the hymns of the Divine Office by Pope Urban VIII (1568-1644), it was altered and changed to Exultet Orbis Gaudiis. Both versions are shown below. Ordained in 1976, Fr. Scagnelli is a priest and liturgist of the Diocese of Providence and acts as a consultant in Latin-to-English translations for the International Commission on English in the Liturgy (ICEL). Now Let the Heav'ns Resound with Praise is set to the tune: Rex Gloriose Martyrum (1st video), first published in the Ca­thol­ische Geist­liche Ge­säsange of 1608. In the Liturgy of the Hours it is used in the Commons of the Apostles.


Tune: Rex Gloriose Martyrum

EXSULTET CAELUM LAUDIBUS
Listen

Exsúltet cælum láudibus,
resúltet terra gáudiis:
Apostolórum glóriam
sacra canunt sollémnia.

Vos, sæcli iusti iúdices
et vera mundi lúmina,
votis precámur córdium,
audíte preces súpplicum.

Qui cælum verbo cláuditis
serásque eius sólvitis,
nos a peccátis ómnibus
sólvite iussu, quæsumus.

Quorum præcépto súbditur
salus et languor ómnium,
sanáte ægros móribus,
nos reddéntes virtútibus,

Ut, cum iudex advénerit
Christus in fine sæculi,
nos sempitérni gáudii
fáciat esse cómpotes.

Deo sint laudes glóriæ,
qui dat nos evangélicis
per vos doctrínis ínstrui
et prósequi cæléstia. Amen.

EXSULTET ORBIS GAUDIIS (1632 Revision)

1. Exsultet orbis gaudiis:
Cælum resúltet láudibus:
Apostolórum glóriam
Tellus et astra concinunt.

2. Vos sæculórum iúdices,
Et vera mundi lúmina:
Votis precámur córdium,
Audíte voces súpplicum.

3. Qui templa cæli cláuditis,
Serásque verbo sólvitis,
Nos a reátu noxios
Solvi iubete, quæsumus.

4. Præcépta quorum protinus
Languor salusque sentiunt:
Sanáte mentes languidas:
Augete nos virtútibus.

5. Ut, cum redibit arbiter
In fine Christus sæculi,
Nos sempitérni gáudii
Concedat esse cómpotes.

6. Patri, simúlque Fílio,
Tibique Sancte Spíritus,
Sicut fuit, sit iúgiter
Sæclum per omne glória. Amen.
