Quo Vos Magistri Gloria Quo Salus

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

Quo vos Magistri gloria, quo salus
Invitat orbis, sancta cohors, Dei*
Portate verbum: vos reposcit,
Prima seges, pia cura fratrum.

Proh! quanta messis protinus extitit!
Ter mille verbum concipiunt viri:
Deoque maturante, reddunt
Multiplicem, bona terra, fructum.

Compuncta passim pectora fletibus
Mœrent amaris, atque piaculo
Ardent salutaris lavacri
Præteritas abolere labes.

At non Hebræis limitibus sacer
Hærebit ardor. Sol habitabiles
Qua lustrat oras, hac triumphis
Materies patet ampla vestris.

Iam mille divum templa solo ruunt:
Cedit superbæ vis sapientiæ,
Cedunt tyranni, victa cedit
Carnificum rabies furentum.

Novum potentis gratia Spiritus
Creavit orbem: nos quoque, nos tuæ
Succendat ardor caritatis,
Alme Deus, renovetque totos.

Sit** summa Patri, summaque Filio;
Sit, sancte, compar laus tibi, Spiritus,
Quo dura mitescunt, novasque
Concipiunt pia corda flammas. Amen.
