1 Blest Trinity! from mortal sight
Veiled in thine own eternal Light!
We thee confess, in thee believe;
To thee with loving hearts we cleave.

2 O Father! thou Most Holy One!
O God of God! Eternal Son!
O Holy Ghost! thou Love divine!
To join them both is ever thine.

3 The Father is in God the Son,
And with the Father he is One;
In both the Spirit doth abide,
And with them both is glorified.

4 Eternal Father! thee we praise;
To thee, O Son! our hymns we raise;
O Holy Ghost! we thee adore!
One mighty God, for evermore!

SanteĆ¼il, Jean-Baptiste de, was born in Paris of a good family on May 12, 1630. He was one of the regular Canons of St. Victor, at Paris, and, under the name of Santolius Victorinus, was distinguished as a writer of Latin poetry. Many of his hymns appeared in the Cluniac Breviary 1686, and the Paris Breviaries 1680 and 1736, and several have been translated into English, and are in common use in Great Britain and America. He was very jocose in disposition and singular in his habits. When on a journey he died at Dijon, Aug. 5, 1697. His Hymni Sacri et Novi were published at Paris in 1689, and again, enlarged, in 1698.
