Hymns of St. Thomas Aquinas

Today, in the Catholic liturgical calendar, is the Feast of Corpus Christi. This feast was instituted in 1264 by Pope Urban IV. He commissioned St. Thomas Aquinas to compose an Office for Corpus Christi, which yielded the following beautiful hymns:

  • Pange, Lingua, Gloriosi (Acclaim, My Tongue, This Mystery).... stanzas five and six of this hymn have become the famous "Tantum Ergo Sancramentum," often sung at Eucharistic benediction ceremonies.
  • Sacris Solemnis Juncta Sint Gaudia (Let Joys Be Joined to Solemn Feasts)
  • Verbum Supernum Prodiens (The Word from Heaven Now Proceeding)
  • Lauds, Sion, Salvotorem (Praise, O Sion, Your Redeemer)

The Office for Corpus Christi is included in Devoutly I Adore Thee: The Prayers and Hymns of Saint Thomas Aquinas, published in 1993 in Latin and in original English translation by Sophia Institute Press.

On this beautiful feast day, spend some time in quiet contemplation and adoration-- and, perhaps, pen the thoughts that are inspired by your thoughts and God's inspiration.
