Precemur omnes cernui

— Liber Hymnarius

  1. Now the acceptable time
    given from heaven shines brightly,
    that it might heal a sickened world
    with the medicine of moderation.

  2. With Christ’s seemly light
    the day of salvation shines forth,
    while abstinence reforms
    hearts wounded by their faults.

  3. Bring about, O tender God,
    that with our minds and bodies
    we might strive for favorable passage
    in the eternal Passover.

  4. O clement Trinity,
    may everything adore you,
    and let us who are renewed through grace
    sing a new song. Amen.
