Capitulum

[7] Factum est prelium magnum in celo Mi\chael et angeli eius preliabantur cum\ dracone et draco pugnavit et angeli eius [8] et\ non prevaluerunt neque locus [e] inventus est eorum\ amplius in celo.

Deo gracias.


Hymn, Eya pusille gaudeas.

A hymn celebrating the Guardian Angel, invoking his virtues, the virtue he confers and the protection he offers. The author reminds the timorous mortal that his Guardian Angel always beholds God the Fatherís face and therefore he need have no fear.

Ymnus.\

Eya pusille gaudeas
hostilem cernens\ aciem
custos tuus ne pereas
paternam\ videt faciem.

Divinis astat laudi\bus
simplex intelligencia
pollens in naturalibus,\
purus in innocencia.

Vita per eum stabilis\
clarus fortis et agilis
liber et impertabilis [impeccabilis]
deo\ toto amabilis.

Amans fervoris ignei
felix\ sublimis meriti
altaris presul aurei
legatus bene\ placiti.

Adherens deo spiritus
et virtus invin\cibilis
est tutor meus inclitus
demonibus terri\bilis.

Deo sit benedictio
cuius tam necessariam,
magna fecit dilectio
mecum misericordiam. Amen.

Versus

Responsum.
