It's a bit late, but here's the "Te Deum Patrem colimus" traditionally sung from the tower of Magdalen College, Oxford:

There's a translation here. I've always heard this referred to as the "Hymn to the Sun," but it is a Trinitarian hymn with no reference to spring, sunshine, etc. Anyone know if the seniors actually sing this at Bryn Mawr May Day anymore?
