Responsory Of St. Anthony Of PADUA.
If you ask for miracles,
Death, error, all calamities
The leprous stain and demons fly,
And health succeeds infirmities.
The sea obeys and Fetters break,
And lifeless limbs thou dost restore.
Whilst treasures lost are found again,
When young and old thine aid implore
All dangers vanish at thy prayer,
And direst need doth quickly flee,
Let those who knew thy power proclaim,
Let paduans say-These are of thee.
Repeat-The sea obeys,…………
To the Father, son, may glory be,
And Holy Ghost eternally.
Repeat The sea obeys,…………
(V) Pray for us, O blessed Anthony.
(R) That we may be made worthy of the promises of christ.
