More Dominicana - O Lumen Ecclesiae

While the Dominican spirit has taken me, here is the beautiful prayer to St Dominic that is used by the Blackfriars in their priories after Compline.

If you want to hear it chanted, visit:

O lumen Ecclesiae

Doctor veritatis,
Rosa patientiae,
Ebur castitatis,
Aquam sapientiae
propinasti gratis,
Praedicator gratiae,
nos junge beatis.

Light of the Church,
Teacher of truth,
Rose of patience,
Ivory of chastity,
You freely offered
The waters of wisdom,
Preacher of grace,
Unite us with the blessed.
