O Fons Amoris Spiritus

This hymn is used for Terce on Sundays and Weekdays throughout the year in the Paris Breviary.

O Fons amoris, Spiritus,
O sancte donorum parens,
Tuas refusus intimis
Accende flammas cordibus.

Qui caritatis vinculo
Cum Patre nectis Filium,
Et nos amoris mutui
Arctis coapta nexibus.

Deo Patri sit gloria,
Eiusque soli Filio,
Sancto simul cum Spiritu,
Nunc, et per omne sæculum. Amen.
