- File:57 Qua Christus.mp3 H.II, p. 57
Qua Christus hora sitiit
crucem vel in qua subiit,
quos praestat in hac psallere
ditet siti iustitiae.
quam ipse de se satiet,
crimen sit ut fastidium
sic influat psallentibus,
ut carnis aestus frigeat
et mentis algor ferveat.
Christi Patrisque Spiritum;
unum potens per omnia,
fove precantes, Trinitas. Amen.
The hour in which Christ became thirsty
or also in which, unto the cross, He climbed,
supplies those in this hour to sing psalms,
enriches with thirst for justice.
which may He from Himself satisfy,
may crime be unto loathing
and virtue, desire.
thus let it flow into those singing the psalms,
that the flesh's heat may become frigid
and the mind's coldness may become fervent.
and Christ's and the Father's Spirit;
One, Powerful through all things,
support those entreating, O Trinity! Amen.
