O quam glorifica

O quam glorifica luce coruscas,

Stirpis Davidicae regia proles!

Sublimis residens, Virgo Maria,

Supra caeligenas aetheris omnes.

Tu cum virgineo mater honore,

Ang(e)lorum Domino pectoris aulam

Sacris visceribus casta parasti;

Natus hinc Deus est corpore Christus.

Quem cunctus venerans orbis adorat,

cui nunc rite genuflectitur omne;

A quo te, petimus, subveniente,

Abjectis tenebris, gaudia lucis.

Hoc largire Pater luminis omnis,

Natum per proprium, Flamine sacro,

Qui tecum nitida vivit in aethra

Regnans, ac moderans saecula cuncta.


O how glorious art thou, dazzling with light,

stock of David, royal offspring!

Thou dwellest in a sublime height, O Virgin Mary,

Looking down on all the heavenly regions.

Thou, with the honour of being a virgin and mother,

hast prepared for the Lord of Angels thy bosom

as a sacred palace, thy most holy womb,

from whence God took flesh, and was born Christ.

Thou, whom the whole world venerates and pay homage,

before whom all now rightfully bend the knee,

To whom we humbly beseech in our misery and darkness,

coming before thee surrounded by the joy of pure light.

O Father of all lights, through this sacred Flame

give unto us thy only Begotten Son,

who with Thee reigns brilliantly in the heavens,

ruling and governing for all ages.
