(O Saving Victim)
O saving Victim, open wide
the gates of heaven to man below;
our foes press on from every side:
Thine aid supply; Thy strength bestow.
All praise and thanks to Thee ascend
for evermore, blest One in Three;
O grant us rest that shall not end in our true native land with Thee.
St. Thomas Aquinas, thirteenth century
