O Luce Quæ Tua Lates

This hymn was used for Lauds on Trinity Sunday in the Paris Breviary (1736). 

O luce quæ tua lates,
Beata semper Trinitas,
Te confitemur, credimus,
Pioque corde quærimus.

O sancte sanctorum Pater!
O Nate de Deo Deus!
O caritatis vinculum,
Iungens utrumque, Spiritus!

Ut se videt totum Pater,
Coæva proles nascitur;
Amorque quo se diligunt,
Et ipse procedit Deus.

Est totus in Nato Pater,
In Patre totus Filius;
Natoque plenus ac Patre
Inest utrique Spiritus.

Quod Natus est, hoc Spiritus;
Hoc est uterque quod Pater:
Tres una summa Veritas:
Tres una summa Caritas.

Æterna Patri gloria,
Natoque sit cum Spiritu,
Qui vivit et regnat Deus
In sæculorum sæcula. Amen.

Words: Claude de Santeul, 17th C.
