Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Spiritus ut Domini nascentia corpora fovit,
Cum manus artificis conderet ipsa Dei:
Sic foveat coetus, qui Christi oracula discunt,
Accendatque igni pectora nostra suo.

German.png German translation

Wie der Geist des Herrn die neugeborenen Körper umhegte,
als die eigene Hand des kunstfertigen Gottes sie schuf,
so möge er umhegen die Gemeinschaft derer, die Christi Weissagungen studieren,
und entzünden mit seinem Feuer unsere Herzen.

Translation by Gerhard Weydt

Just as the Spirit of the Lord fostered the new-born bodies,
when the own hand of the skillful God created them,
so he shall foster the community of those, that study the prophecies of Christ,
and inflame our hearts with his fire.

Translation by Gerhard Weydt
