Feast of Pentecost

Reactions 


VENI, Sancte Spiritus,
et emitte caelitus
lucis tuae radium.

COME, Holy Ghost,
send down those beams,
which sweetly flow in silent streams
from Thy bright throne above.

Veni, pater pauperum,
veni, dator munerum
veni, lumen cordium.

O come, Thou Father of the poor;
O come, Thou source of all our store,
come, fill our hearts with love.

Consolator optime,
dulcis hospes animae,
dulce refrigerium.

O Thou, of comforters the best,
O Thou, the soul's delightful guest,
the pilgrim's sweet relief.
In labore requies,
in aestu temperies
in fletu solatium.

Rest art Thou in our toil, most sweet
refreshment in the noonday heat;
and solace in our grief.

O lux beatissima,
reple cordis intima
tuorum fidelium.

O blessed Light of life Thou art;
fill with Thy light the inmost heart
of those who hope in Thee.

Sine tuo numine,
nihil est in homine,
nihil est innoxium.

Without Thy Godhead nothing can,
have any price or worth in man,
nothing can harmless be.

Lava quod est sordidum,
riga quod est aridum,
sana quod est saucium.

Lord, wash our sinful stains away,
refresh from heaven our barren clay,
our wounds and bruises heal.

Flecte quod est rigidum,
fove quod est frigidum,
rege quod est devium.

To Thy sweet yoke our stiff necks bow,
warm with Thy fire our hearts of snow,
our wandering feet recall.

Da tuis fidelibus,
in te confidentibus,
sacrum septenarium.

Grant to Thy faithful, dearest Lord,
whose only hope is Thy sure word,
the sevenfold gifts of grace.

Da virtutis meritum,
da salutis exitum,
da perenne gaudium,
Amen, Alleluia.

Grant us in life Thy grace that we,
in peace may die and ever be,
in joy before Thy face.
Amen. Alleluia.
