FORM Antiphon for the Creator
LENGTH Short-Medium


O eterne Deus,
nunc tibi placeat ut in amore illo ardeas
ut membra illa simus, que fecisti in eodem amore,
cum Filium tuum genuisti in prima aurora
ante omnem creaturam,
et inspice necessitatem hanc que super nos cadit,
et abstrahe eam a nobis propter Filium tuum,
et perduc nos in leticiam salutis.
Oh neverending God,
please may you smolder in that love
in which you conceived those limbs that we would be
when you birthed your Son in the first sunrise
before all creation.
Look upon these urgings that fall on us,
and draw them out of us through your son,
and lead us deep into the joy of salvation
