This serious glee won Danby a Prize Medal from the Catch Club in 1791.
Lyrics: St. Thomas Aquinas

O salutaris hostia
quae caeli pandis ostium,
bella premunt hostilia:
da robur, fer auxilium.

Uni trinoque Domino
sit sempiterna gloria,
qui vitam sine termino
nobis donet in patria.

O saving Victim, opening wide
The gate of heaven to all us below:
Our foes press on from every side;
Thine aid supply, Thy strength bestow.

To Thy great Name be endless praise,
Immortal Godhead, One in Three!
O grant us endless length of days
With Thee in our true country.
