DIVINI SPIRITUS INVO-
CATIO.

INVOCATION: TO THE SPIRIT OF GOD

Omne bonum munus, quod ab omni parte beatum
Patre luminis est desuper adveniens.
Ergo opus orditur quisquis quodcunque Pota:
Invocat hic primum numinis auxilium.
Carmina sic quoque nos scripturi picta, precamur,
Coelesti ut nobis luceat igne Deus.

Every good work that is in all parts blessed arrives from the Father of light above. Hence, whenever any poet begins his work, no matter what, he calls first in this place upon divinity’s help. And so we pray, as we begin to write painted songs, that God may light our path with celestial fire.
