Hymn for Vespers, Office of the Holy Spirit

"Dextre dei digitus uirtus spiritalis
Nos defendat et eruat ab omnibus malis.
Ut nobis non noceat demon infernalis
Protegat et foueat nutriat sub alis."

--The University of Chicago, Regenstein Library, MS 344, fol. 14

Finger of the right hand of God, spirit of strength*,
Defend and rescue us from all evils.
That the infernal demon may not harm us,
Protect, cherish and nourish us under your wings.

*Lit. "spiritual virtue" or "fortitude"
