Notes

Ad templa nos rursus vocat. Charles Coffin. [Sunday Morning.] In his Hymni Sacri, p. 8, ed. Paris, 1736, under the heading Die Dominica ad Laudes Matutinas. In the revised Paris Breviary of the Abp. Charles de Vintimille, 1736, it is the hymn for Sunday at Lauds; as also in the Lyons and other modern French Breviaries. Text as above, and in Card. Newman's Hymni Eccl. 1838, p. 2. [Rev. W. A. Shoults, B. D.]
Translations in common use:—

3. Again the Sunday morn, by E. Caswall, appeared in his Lyra Catholica, 1849, p. 293, and again in his Hymns and Poems, 1873, p. 223. In its original form its use is very limited, but as:—
4. Again the holy morn, it is given in several collections, including the Hymnary, 1872, No. 7, Hymns & Carols, n. d., No. 15, the Roman Catholic Hymns for the Year, n. d., No. 83, and many others. Another form based upon Caswall's translation is:—
5. When first the world sprang forth, in Kennedy, 1863, No. 701. It is probably by the editor, and is not found elsewhere.
