O nata lux de lumine

Available translation(s): ENG
O nata lux de lumine,
Jesu redemptor saeculi,
dignare clemens supplicum
laudes preces que sumere.

Qui carne quondam contegi
dignatus es pro perditis.
Nos membra confer effici
tui beati corporis.

Prae sole vultu flammeus,
ut nix amictu candidus,
in monte dignis testibus
tu paruisti conditor.

Vates alumnis abditos
novis vetustos conferens
utrisque te divinitus
deum dedisti credere.

Te vox paterna caelitus
suum vocavit filium,
quem nos fideli pectore
regem fatemur caelitum.

Concede nobis, quaesumus,
almis micare moribus,
ut ad polorum gaudia,
bonis vehamur actibus.

Laudes tibi nos pangimus,
aeterne regum rex, deus,
qui trinus unus rector es
per cuncta regnans saecula.

M. Lauridsen sets stanzas 1-2
T. Tallis sets stanzas 1-2
