Immense Caeli Conditor (Monday Vespers)

The text of the hymn “Immense Caeli Conditor” is attributed to Pope St. Gregory the Great (540-604). The chanting of the hymn below comes from the monks of the Abbaye Sainte-Madeleine du Barroux, a Benedictine monastery in France. Learn more at barrouxchant.com.

Immense caeli Conditor,
qui, mixta ne confunderent,
aquae fluenta dividens,
caelum dedisti limitem,

Firmans locum caelestibus,
simulque terrae rivulis,
ut unda flammas temperet,
terrae solum ne dissipet:

Infunde nunc, piissime,
donum perennis gratiae,
fraudis novae ne casibus
nos error atterat vetus.

Lucem fides inveniat,
sic luminis iubar ferat;
haec vana cuncta terreat,
hanc falsa nulla comprimant.

Praesta, Pater piissime,
Patrique compar Unice,
cum Spiritu Paraclito
regnans per omne saeculum.

Amen.
