From Promptuarii musici (vol. 2), 1612.
Lyrics: St. Gregory (adapted)

Gustate et videte quoniam suavis est Dominus.
Suavitatem eius non cognoscitis si hanc minime gustatis.
Sed cibum vitae ex palato cordis tangite, ut probantes eius dulcedinem amare valeatis.
Et in voce exultationis resonent epulantes in mensa Domini.

O taste, and see, how gracious the Lord is.
If ye taste not, ye shall not know His pleasantness.
But from the vault of your heart touch the bread of life, so that, having proved His sweetness, ye shall have the strength to love Him.
Those who feast call again and again in a voice of exultation at the table of the Lord.
