Spiritus Sanctus

(Composed c. 1151 by Saint Hildegard of Bingen)
 

Spiritus Sanctus, vivificans vita, movens omnia
Et radix est in omni creatura
Ac omnia de immunditia abluit
Tergens crimina
Ac ungit vulnera
Et sic est fulgens ac laudabilis vita
Suscitans et resuscitans omnia

(Holy Spirit, enlivening life, moving all
You are the root of all creation
Washing away all impurity
Scouring guilt
Anointing wounds
Thus you are luminous and praiseworthy life
Awakening and reawakening all)
