The soul is distracted from that which is sung by a chant that is employed for the purpose of giving pleasure. But if the singer chant for the sake of devotion, he pays more attention to what he says, both because he lingers more thereon, and because, as Augustine remarks (Confess. x, 33), “each affection of our spirit, according to its variety, has its own appropriate measure in the voice, and singing, by some hidden correspondence wherewith it is stirred.” The same applies to the hearers, for even if some of them understand not what is sung, yet they understand why it is sung, namely, for God's glory: and this is enough to arouse their devotion.
— St. Thomas Aquinas
Free Organ Accompaniment for the Sprinkling Rite
published 18 October 2011 by Jeff Ostrowski

I have written a keyboard accompaniment for the Ordinary Form version of the “Asperges Me.” This is one of the many settings found in the Vatican II Hymnal.

Ant. You will sprinkle me with hyssop, O Lord, and I shall be cleansed;
You will wash me, and I shall be made whiter than snow.
Have mercy on me, O God, according to your great mercy.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
Ant. You will sprinkle me with hyssop, O Lord, and I shall be cleansed;
You will wash me, and I shall be made whiter than snow.
