    A lovely, mediaeval hymn for Good Shepherd Sunday “Isti sunt Agni novelli”. I can find two useful references to it. The tune (as a ring tone!) http://www.mspot.com/song/monaci_cistercensi_dellabbazia_di_casamari_padre_ildebrando_di_fulvio/missa_resurrectionis_isti_sunt_agni_novelli

    .. and the words ( freely translated ):

    These are the lambs, newly-baptized,who proclaimed the glad tidings: Alleluia! recently come to the waters, and full of God’s light and splendor. Alleluia! Alleluia!

    Lady, Queen, whom grace from heaven, Has preferred to all on earth, Now renewed, the world is brightened, By your holy virgin-birth.

    Oh, how lovely and how wondrous, Is the cure that saved us all: Jesus, in His love, becomes now, Victim for His people’s fall!

    Now renewed through holy washing, In the font of our rebirth, Soon the chrism’s oil and fragrance, Will give strength to us on earth!

    To each Christian now is given, Christ’s own Flesh as Bread of Life. Christ’s own Blood becomes the sweetest, Source of joy in all our strife!
