Hymni ecclesiae

Of the three kinds of poetical composition which, in accordance with the Apostle’s direction, have ever been in use in the Church, “Psalms and Hymns and Spiritual Songs,” two are supplied by inspiration. We have no need, through God’s bounty, to turn our thoughts to the composition of Psalms or Songs; and, to judge from the attempts which have been made, doubtless we are unequal to it.

Book Excerpt

at hostis vulnera.

Infestus usque circuit
Quaerens leo quem devoret:
Umbra sub alarum tuos
Defende filios, Pater.

O quando lucescet tuus
Qui nescit occasum, dies!
O quando sancta se dabit,
Quae nescit hostem, patria.

Deo Patri sit gloria,
Ejusque soli Filio,
Sancto simul cum Spiritu,
Nunc, et per omne seculum.

FERIA II.

AD OFFICIUM NOCT.

Dei canamus gloriam,
Coelum secundo qui die
Expandit, admirabile
Mortalibus spectaculum.

Poli stupemus alveo
Stagnare pensiles lacus:
Hinc imbre terras fertili
Coelestis irrorat Pater.

Quam praeparas nobis, Deus,
Est haec imago gratiae:
Haec rore stillans uberi
Cordis penetrat intima.

Hanc qui fideli combibunt
Aquam salubrem pectore,
In his ad aeternas domos
Miro resultat impetu.

Beata gens, quam prodiga
Ditare non cessas manu!
Amoris haec memor tui,
Amoris et reddat vices.
