mentes tuorum visita,
imple superna gratia
quae tu creasti pectora.

Thou, finger of God's hand we own;
Thou, promise of the Father,
Thou Who dost the tongue with power imbue.

digitus paternae dexterae,
Tu rite promissum Patris,
sermone ditans guttura.

infunde amorem cordibus:
infirma nostri corporis
virtute firmans perpeti.

and grant us Thy peace instead;
so shall we not, with Thee for guide,
turn from the path of life aside.

vitemus omne noxium.

the Father and the Son to know;
and Thee, through endless times confessed, of both the eternal Spirit blest.

noscamus atque Filium;
Teque utriusque Spiritum
credamus omni tempore.
|Now to the Father and the Son,|
Who rose from death, be glory given,
with Thou, O Holy Comforter,
henceforth by all in earth and heaven. Amen.
|Deo Patri sit gloria,|
et Filio, qui a mortuis surrexit,
in saeculorum saecula. Amen.
