Verbum supernum prodiens
a Patre o lim exiens,

qui natus orbi subvenis
cursu declivi temporis

Illumina nunc pectora
et tuo amore concrema;

audito et praeconia
sint pulsa tandem lubrica.

Laus, honor, virtus, gloria
Deo Patri et Filio

Sancto simul Paraclito
In sempiterna saecula.

Celestial Word, to this our earth
sent down from God’s eternal clime,

to save mankind by mortal birth
into a world of change and time;

Lighten our hearts, vain hopes destroy;
and in Thy love’s consuming fire

Fill all the soul with heavenly joy,
and melt the dross of low desire.

To God the Father, God the Son,
And God the Spirit, Three in One,

Laud, honor, might, and glory be
From age to age eternally.
