Domare Cordis Impetus

This hymn is used for Vespers & Matins on the Feast of St. Elizabeth of Portugal in the Extraordinary Form.

Domare cordis impetus Elisabeth
Fortis, inopsque Deo
Servire, regno prætulit.

En fulgidis recepta cæli sedibus,
Sidereæque domus
Ditata sanctis gaudiis.

Nunc regnat inter cælites beatior,
Et premit astra, docens
Quæ vera sint regni bona.

Patri potestas, Filioque gloria,
Perpetuumque decus
Tibi sit, alme Spiritus. Amen.
