Te Deum Patrem colimus,
Te laudibus prosequimur :
Qui corpus cibo reficis,
Cælesti mentem gratiâ.
Te adoramus, O Jesu!
Te, Fili unigenite,
Te, Qui non dedignatus es
Subire claustra Virginis.
Actus in Crucem, factus es
Irato Deo Victima :
Per Te, Salvator Unice,
Vitæ spes nobis rediit,

Tibi, Æterne Spiritus,
Cujus afflatu peperit
Infantem Deum Maria,
Æternum benedicimus.
Triune Deus, hominum
Salutis Auctor optime,
Immensum hoc mysterium
Ovante linguâ canimus.


213 I wrestle and pray, O Jesu, my Saviour, till blessed by Thee.

(Sung at the same time as the above.)
Thou art my God, Almighty LORD;
I know by Thy unchanging word,

Thine is a Father's heart.
Yet I, though dust, for comfort flee,
And find it while I cleave to Thee.
O JESU, Son of GOD, I raise
My voice to Thee in hymns of praise,

For Thy redeeming grace;
Increase my faith, and strengthen me,
That I may pray and cleave to Thee!

And while I hail Thy love divine,
O Spirit, make its comforts mine,-

The blessings Jesu bought.
Thus, great and undivided Three,
May I for ever cleave to Ye!
