Venite, exultemus Domino

Language: Latin

Venite, exsultemus Domino, 
jubilemus Deo nostro, 
et procedentes adoremus eum
in salutari altaris convivio. 
Hic enim adest supremae majestatis
celtitudo infinita, 
et in carne adoranda 
vera Jesu presentia. 
O immensus amor, 
admirabile convivium, 
o adorabile misterium. 
Vox nulla potest dicere
nec mens valet concipere
quo sit cordis jocunditas,
dulcedo et suavitas
de carne Jesu edere 
de potu Christi bibere
in sacrosanta hostia. 
Venite ergo, venite omnes
et admiramini, gustate, 
libate caelorum decicias
in mensa Domini.

Venid, alegrémonos en el Señor

Language: Spanish (Español) after the Latin

Venid, alegrémonos en el Señor, 
regocijémonos en nuestro Dios, 
y vayamos a adorarlo 
en el salutífero banquete del altar. 
Aquí está presente la excelsitud infinita 
de la suprema majestad, 
y para ser adorada en su carne, 
la verdadera presencia de Jesús. 
Oh inmenso amor, 
admirable banquete, 
oh adorable misterio. 
Ninguna voz puede decir
ni mente alguna concebir
la alegría del corazón, 
la dulzura y suavidad 
de comer la carne de Jesús
y beber la bebida de Cristo
en la sacrosanta hostia. 
Venid, pues, venid todos, 
admiraos, gustad 
y probad las delicias celestiales
en la mesa del Señor.
