  • Oh wondrous hope which thou didst give
    to comfort those who wept for thee,
    That after death yet more than life,
    thou wouldst a loving Father be.

    Refrain:
    Oh Father keep thy gracious word
    in these thy dying moments given,
    That thou wouldst watch over us below
    And plead for all our needs in heaven.

    Shining among the saints of old
    thou didst a marvelous power display,
    To heal the sick and faint of heart
    Bring healing to our souls we pray.

    Refrain

    All glory to the Trinity
    From whom all life and goodness comes
    To Father, Son, and Spirit Blest
    All praise and glory ever be.

    Refrain

    Reference: Dominican Nuns

    Lord have mercy.

    No, this is a beautiful hymn that was sung in harmony every night after Compline before the nuns would retire for the evening.
    It was one of my favorite hymns. I do not know who penned the lyrics. I would love to see the music for it.
    Lord have mercy.

  • It's the responsory O Spem Miram. Usually the O Lumen is sung nightly after Compline.

    Thank you for posting this information.

    After Compline, the Dominican Nuns would process to the Oratory to the altar of the Blessed Virgin Mary while singing the Salve Regina and the O Lumen in Latin followed by the O Spem Miram in English (in the translation provided above).
    The O Spem Miram, in English O Wondrous Hope, was sung almost every night, except for special feast days like Christmas and Easter.
    Lord have mercy.

    Novena To Our Holy Father St. Dominic: July 26 - August 3

  • Novena To Our Holy Father St. Dominic: July 26 - August 3

    O renowned champion of the faith of Christ, most holy Saint Dominic, who didst renounce the honour and dignity of an earthly principality to embrace the poor, laborious, and mortified life which should distinguish a disciple of Him Who has said: "If any man will come after Me, let him take up his cross and follow Me."
    O burning torch, who being thyself consumed with the fire of divine love, didst incessantly labor to enkindle that sacred flame in the hearts of others, look down upon me from that throne of glory where thou enjoyest the reward of all thy labors, and obtain that some sparks of that blessed fire may be lighted in my soul, to animate and encourage me under any crosses or trials with which it shall please the divine goodness to visit me.
    Thou, O great Saint, regardest as nothing all the afflictions thou didst endure, and all the toils thou didst undergo for the promotion of God's holy cause; obtain, I beseech Thee, that the same ardent love which strengthened thee, may make sweet to me labors, humiliations, disgraces, or whatever other mortification's I may have to suffer for the Name of Jesus. May I ever bear in mind that nothing can happen to me but by the particular dispensation of a God Who is infinitely wise, and therefore knows what is best for my welfare; infinitely powerful, and consequently able to effect it; and above all, infinitely merciful and loving, Who has laid down His life for my redemption, and continues daily to give new proofs of His love and bounty.
    O tender Father of the poor who, when all other resources were exhausted, didst offer thyself for their relief, obtain for me that true spirit of compassion for the suffering members of Jesus Christ, which shone forth so conspicuously in thy holy life. May I, by charity to those whom Jesus so dearly loves, lay up for myself treasures in heaven, where thou now enjoyest that which the eye hath not seen, nor the ear heard, nor the heart of man conceived, but which God has prepared for those who love Him, and who prove themselves His Disciples by the observance of His Divine precept "love one another."
    I praise and thank God for the high degree of sanctity to which He had raised thee, and the special privileges by which He has distinguished thee. I conjure thee, by that gratitude with which thou shalt for all eternity be penetrated for thy Divine Benefactor, implore for me the grace to root out of my heart whatever is not agreeable in His sight, especially that evil habit by which I most frequently offend Him. Obtain likewise the favors I request in this Novena, through thy powerful intercession.
    (Mention your intentions here)
    O glorious Mother of God, Queen of the most sacred Rosary, thou who didst love Dominic with the affection of a mother, and were most tenderly loved and honored by him, look upon me, for his sake, with an eye of pity, deign to join with him in presenting these petitions to thy most Blessed Jesus. I sincerely desire from this moment to love Him with all my heart, and serve Him with all my strength, and now place myself under thy powerful protection, as a sure means of obtaining all the graces necessary to serve Him faithfully here, that I may eternally rejoice with Him hereafter. Amen.

    Yes, that's the Dominicans' distinctive "Salve Procession" (cf. Bonniwell ch. 13: "Compline and the Salve Procession").

    I miss the Salve Procession. It was the perfect ending of a day and the beginning of a new day.
    Lord have mercy.
