Like most liturgical psalmody and hymnody, this song has its proper season for use; Pentecost. However, it is always conducive to strengthen the soul with this kind of simple but rich music. The image is “The Conversion of St. Paul” by Bartolome Esteban Murillo. the English and Latin follow:
Spiritus Domini replevit orbem terrarum, Alleluia; et hoc quod continet omnia, scientiam habet vocis, Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia.
Exurgat Deus, et dissipentur inimici ejus, et fugiant qui oderunt eum a facie ejus.
Gloria Patri, et Filio, et Spiritui Sancto, sicut erat in principio, et nunc, et semper, et in saecula saeculorum. Amen.
The Spirit of the Lord hath filled the whole world, alleluia; and that which containeth all things hath knowledge of the voice, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.
Let God arise, and let His enemies be scattered: and let them that hate Him flee from before His face.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost, as it was in the beginning, also now, and always, and to ages of ages. Amen.
The Spirit of the Lord…
