O Saving Victim by St. Thomas Aquinas

O Saving Victim, op’ning wide
The gate of heaven here below;
Our foes press on from ev’ry side;
Your aid supply, your strength bestow.

To your great Name be endless praise,
Immortal Godhead, One in Three;
O grant us endless length of days
In our true native land to be.

O Salutaris Hostia

Quae caeli pandis ostium;
Bella premunt hostilia,
Da robur, fer auxilium.

Uni trinoque Domino
Sit sempiterna gloria
Qui vitam sine termino
Nobis donet in patria.
