Alternatim and abbreviated version of Iste confessor included in Liber Vesperarum Francisco Guerrero Hispalensis Ecclessiae Magistro auctore (Roma: Domenico Bassa, 1584) (RISM G4873). This setting uses the verses of Iste Confessor Domini colentes instead of Iste confessor Domini sacratus, used in Liber vesperarum. The music applied to verse 4 (Unde nunc noster chorus in honorem, canon in diapason) in Liber Vesperarum's version has been supressed.

Text: 

[Iste confessor Domini colentes variant].

1. Iste confessor Domini colentes/ Quem pie laudant populi per orbem:/ Hac die lætus meruit beatas/ Scandere sedes.
        [If it is not the day of his death,  the last line is changed to:]  Hac die lætus meruit supremos/ Laudis honores.
2. Qui pius, prudens, humilis, pudicus/ Sobriam duxit sine labe vitam,/ Donec humanos animavit auræ/ Spiritus artus.
3. Cuius ob præstans meritum frequenter,/ Ægra quæ passim iacuere membra,/ Viribus morbi domitis, saluti/ Restituuntur.
4. Noster hinc illi, Chorus obsequentem/ Concinit laudem,  celebresque palmas;/ Ut piis ejus precibus juvemur/ Omne per ævum.
5. Sit salus illi decus atque virtus,/ Qui  super cæli solio coruscans/ Totius mundi seriem gubernat/ Trinus, & unus. Amen.
