Venite, exultemus Domino
Language: Latin 
Available translation(s): SPA
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.

Note: the first two lines come from Psalm 94 (95) line 1.
