*O nata lux de lumine, Jesu redemptor saeculi,
Dignare clemens supplicum, Laudes precesque sumere.
Qui carne quondam contegi, Dignatus es pro perditis,
Nos membra confer effici, Tui beati corporis.

O Light born of Light,
Jesus, redeemer of the world,
with loving-kindness deign to receive
suppliant praise and prayer.

Thou who once deigned to be clothed in flesh
for the sake of the lost,
grant us to be members
of thy blessed body.
