Audimur Almo Spiritus

This hymn was used for Lauds of Pentecost in the Paris Breviary (1736).

Audimur: almo Spiritus
Descendit e sinu Patris,
Ægrisque fert mortalibus
Promissa cæli munera.

Quot proditur miraculis
Præsentis adventus Dei!
Iam tota sublimi domus
Repente flatu personat.

Puro caducus æthere,
Candentis ad linguæ modum,
In considentum verticem
Ignitus imber depluit.

Quæ flamma summas alluit
Innoxio tactu comas,
Hæc gliscit arcanis simul
In pectus et mentem viis.

Stupente turba gentium,
Linguis loquuntur omnibus;
Vatum crepant oracula;
Quidquid profantur, ignis est.

Inter profandum, Spiritus
In audientes irruit,
Instincta quo passim nova
Surgit Prophetarum seges.

Sit laus Patri; laus Filio:
Par sit tibi laus, Spiritus,
Afflante quo mentes sacris
Lucent et ardent ignibus. Amen.

Words: Fr. Charles Coffin, 1736.
Tune: Unknown.

Meter: 88.88
