Veni Sancte Spiritus

This is the Sequence hymn for Pentecost:

Veni Sancte Spiritus,
Et emitte coelitus
Lucis Tuae Radium.

Veni Pater pauperum,
Veni Dator munerum,
Veni Lumen cordium.

Consolator optime,
Dulcis Hospes animae,
Dulce Refrigerium.

In labore Requies,
In aestu Temperies,
In fletu Solatium.

O Lux Beatissima,
Reple cordis intima
Tuorum fidelium.

Sine Tuo Numine,
Nihil est in homine,
Nihil est innoxium.

Lava quod est sordidum,
Riga quod est aridum,
Sana quod est saucium.

Flecte quod est rigidum,
Fove quod est frigidum,
Rege quod est devium.

Da Tuis fidelibus
In Te confidentibus
Sacrum Septenarium.

Da virtutis meritum,
Da Salutis exitum,
Da perenne gaudium. Amen.
