I’m going to be publishing a great deal of video content for the children, especially little ones, and I will have some background music in the opening and closing slides that I assume parents would want to understand.
First, here’s the clip that will play:
The music is a piece of Gregorian Chant, consisting of two stanzas from the Latin hymn “Veni Creator Spiritus” (Come, Holy Spirit). They read:
Tu, septiformis munere,
digitus paternae dexterae,
Tu rite promissum Patris,
sermone ditans guttura.
Accende lumen sensibus:
infunde amorem cordibus:
infirma nostri corporis
virtute firmans perpeti.
These lines translate as:
Thou who art sevenfold in thy grace,
finger of God’s right hand;
his promise, teaching little ones
to speak and understand.
O guide our minds with thy blest light,
with love our hearts inflame;
and with thy strength, which ne’er decays,
confirm our mortal frame.
I felt these were appropriate lines for school videos, and we can offer up the prayer they express for our children whenever we hear them playing.

Beautiful! I have chanted that song many times, but only just now saw those verses in that certain light. How wonderful!
