Scamnalia Frisingensis 1520

Veni creator spiritus/
mentes tuorum visita:
ipse superna gratia
quem tu creasti pectora.

  • Que paraclite diceris

donum dei altissimi:
fons vivus ignis charitas
et spiritalis unctio.

Tu septiformis munere
dextre dei tu digitus:
tu rite promissum patris
sermone ditans guttura.

  • Accede lumen sensibus

infunde amorem cordibus
infirma nostri coporis
virtute firmans perpetim

Hostem repellas longius:
pacemque dones protinus:
ductore sic te previo
vitemus omne noxium.

  • Da gaudiorum premia:

da gratiarum munera
dissolve litis vincula:
astrige pacis federa

Per te sciamus da patrem:
noscamus atque filium:
te utriusque spiritus
credamus omni tempore.
Amen.
