Aeterna lux, Divinitas! [Holy Trinity.] An anonymous hymn for Trinity Sunday given in Daniel, 1843, ii. p. 369. It cannot be of an early date. Daniel does not indicate from whence he took his text. It is also in the Corolla Hymnorum, Cologne, 1806, p. 41, in 9 stanzas of 4 lines. [Rev. W. A. Shoults, B. D.]
