Emergit Undis Et Deo

This hymn was used for Lauds and Vespers II for the Octave of Epiphany (January 13 – The Feast of the Lord’s Baptism) in the Paris Breviary(1736).

Emergit undis, et Deo
Fundit preces homo Deus:
Patet polorum regia,
Adest repente Spiritus.

Instar columbæ, vertici
Illapsus insidet sacro;
Summi Patris vox personat:
Dilectus hic est Filius.

Christi dicata corpore
Sic quem lavacra consecrant,
Hic nascitur proles Dei;
Cælum precanti panditur.

Castis fit, expers sordium,
Columba simplex moribus:
Divinus hunc intus regit,
Agit, fovetque Spiritus.

О Christe, sacri gurgitis
Quos abluisti fontibus,
Tuo cruore candidos
Fac nulla labes inquinet.

Mundi scelus qui diluis,
Iesu, tibi sit gloria
Cum Patre, cumque Spiritu,
In sempiterna sæcula. Amen.
