Mäntyjärvi, Jaakko: O lux beata Trinitas

O lux beata Trinitas (2019)

O Lux beata Trinitas, et principalis Unitas,
Iam sol recedat igneus, infunde lumen cordibus. Alleluia.
Te mane laudum carmine, te deprecemur vespere,
Te nostra supplex gloria per cuncta laudet sæcula. Alleluia.
Deo Patri sit gloria, eiusque soli Filio,
Cum Spiritu Paraclito, et nunc et in perpetuum. Alleluia. Amen.

O Trinity of blessed light, and Unity of princely might,
The fiery sun now goes his way; shed thou within our hearts thy ray.
To thee our morning song of praise, to thee our evening prayer we raise;
Thy glory suppliant we adore for ever and for evermore.
All laud to God the Father be; all praise, eternal Son to thee;
All glory as is ever meet, to God the holy Paraclete.

Words: St Ambrose of Milan (340–397) tr. John Mason Neale (1818–66)
