Lyrics: Anon

Veni O Jesu mi, veni O benigne et nubila depelle
et lucem tuam infunde queso menti:
Ex tuo nam conspectu
laeta laetabitur anima tristis
Merita tanta volvens quae grata cunctis
et digna tandem caelestis erit populi.

Come, O my Jesus, come, O kind one, and dispel the clouds;
and pour your light into my mind, I beg;
For, out of your sight,
the sad mind will happily rejoice
Considering such benefits that are welcome to all
and the people finally will be worthy of heavenly things.
