Ad pedes

Language: Latin

"Ecce super montes pedes evangelizantis
et annuntiantis pacem."1

Salve mundi salutare,
Salve, salve, Jesu care!
Cruci tuae me aptare
Vellem vere, tu scis quare,
Da mihi tui copiam.

Clavos pedum, plagas duras
Et tam graves impressuras
Circumplector cum affectu,
Tuo pavens in aspectu,
Tuorum memor vulnerum.

Dulcis Jesu, pie Deus,
Ad te clamo, licet reus:
Praebe mihi te benignum,
Ne repellas me indignum
De tuis sanctis pedibus.

"Ecce super montes pedes evangelizantis
et annuntiantis pacem."
