O quam suavis est, Domine, spiritus tuus,
qui ut dulcedinem tuam in filios demonstrares
pane suavissimo de caelo, decaelo praestito,
esurientes reples bonis, fastidiosos divites
dimittens inanes.

O how sweet is thy spirit, Lord,
thou who, in order to demonstrate thy sweetness to thy children,
send down from heaven the sweetest bread unsurpassed,
filling the hungry with good things, sending away empty the disdainful rich!
