Jean-Baptiste Lully: Domine Salvum Fac Regem

Esteemed Readers, I present you another splendid spiritual composition by Jean-Baptiste Lully. It is called “Domine, Salvum Fac Regem”. The first text was written in Italian in 1658 & translated in French. This motet served as the official hymn in France of Louis XIV’s time.

The Latin text: 

Domine salvum fac regem
et exaudi nos in die qua invocaverimus te.
Gloria Patri et Filio,
et Spiritui Sancto.
Sicut erat in principio
et nunc et semper et in saecula saeculorum.
Amen.

English translation:

Lord, save our King
and hear us in the day in which we shall call upon Thee.
Glory to the Father and the Son,
and the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning
and it is now, and it shall be, for ever without end.
Amen.

Vive le Roy!😊😊😊

  1. Thanks Maria, it seems most monarchs have hymns dedicated to themselves.

      But this hymn is not dedicated to Louis XIV, dear Robbie. It is dedicated to God & to the king who is his lieutenant on Earth. We should not omit the Christian meaning of the past. I’m glad that you have enjoyed it.
