O Oriens, splendor lucis aeternae
et sol justitiae:
veni, et illumina sedentes in tenebris
et umbra mortis.

O Radiant Dawn, splendor of eternal light, sun of justice:
Come, shine on those who dwell in darkness
and the shadow of death.

O Radiant Dawn, splendor of eternal light, sun of justice:
come and shine on those who dwell in darkness
and in the shadow of death

Veni, Veni O Oriens, solare nos adveniens,
noctis depelle nebulas, dirasque mortis tenebras.

O Come, Thou Dayspring from on high
and cheer us by thy drawing nigh
disperse the gloomy clouds of night
and death’s dark shadow put to flight.
