Si quaeris miracula

Si quaeris miracula / If Thou Seekest Miracles

fra Giuliano da Spira (died in 1232) in honor of St. Anthony of Padua.

Si quaeris miracula,Mors, error calamitas,

Daemon, lepra fugiunt,

Aegri surgunt sani.

If, then, thou seekest miracles,

Death, error, all calamities,

The leprosy and demons flee,

The sick, by him made whole, arise.

Ant:Cedunt mare, vincula:Membra resque, perditas

Petunt et accipiunt

Iuvenes et cani.

Ant:The sea withdraws and fetters break,And withered limbs he doth restore,

While treasures lost are found again,

When young or old his help implore.

Pereunt pericula,Cessat et necessitas:

Narrent hi, qui sentiunt,

Dicant Paduani.

All dangers vanish from our path,Our direst needs do quickly flee:

Let those who know repeat the theme:

Let Paduans praise St. Anthony.

Ant: Cedunt mare, vincula… Ant: The sea withdraws…
Gloria Patri et Filioet Spiritui Sancto. To the Father, Son let glory be,And Holy Ghost eternally.
Ant: Cedunt mare, vincula… Ant: The sea withdraws…
V.Ora pro nobis, beate Antoni,R. Ut digni efficiamur promissionibus Christi. V.Pray for us, O blessed Anthony,R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
