Burnet Psalter image.  Aberdeen University Library 1998.

vamen,
Sed fruamur requie
omnes dicant. Amen.\

[Psalm 66] Deus misereatur nostri, et cetera.

Gloria.

Signatum\ est super nos lumen vultus tui domine deus dedisti leti\ciam in corde meo.

Ora pro nobis beata Veronica,\
ut digni efficiamur.

Oremus.\

Prayer, Deus qui nobis.



A prayer to God (HE, p 175). The author recounts how Christ, at the request of St Veronica, bequeathed to her his image on a cloth. He asks that by venerating the image of Christ's face now, 'through a glass darkly' (1 Corinthians, 13:12), we may eventually see him face to face, clearly, as he comes to judge us.


Deus qui nobis signatis lumine\ vultus tui memoriale tuum ad in\stanciam Veronice ymaginem tuo sudario\ impressam relinquere voluisti per passionem\ et crucem tribue nobis quesumus <ut> ita nunc in terris [meritis]\ per speculum <et> in enigmate ipsam venerari <honorare> adorare\ laudare valeamus, ut te tunc facie ad faciem\ venientem super nos in luce <securi> iudicem videamus.\ Dominum nostrum Ihesum Christum filium tuum. Qui tecum.



Hymn of salutation in honour of the passion and wounds of Christ (HE, p 175).


Sa\lutaciones facte in honore passionis et vulnerum\ domini nostri Ihesu Christi.\

Hymn, Salve plaga lateris nostri redemptoris.



The author invokes the wound in the side of Christ our redeemer, from which flowed a rose-coloured stream, healing pain and providing eternal rest. He invokes the wound as the salvation of sin ...


Salve plaga lateris nostri redemptoris,\
Emanavit nam ex te <enim profluit> fons rosei colo\ris,
Et vera medicina tocius doloris,
Et eterna\ requies humani laboris.

Salve plaga domini salus peccatorum.
Tu es consolacio perfecta iustorum,\
