O quam glorifica luce coruscas,
Stirpis Davidicæ regia proles.
Sublimis Virgo Maria,
Supra cæligenas ætheris omnes.

Tu cum virgineo mater honore,
Angelorum 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 nos petimus te subveniente,
Abjectis tenebris, gaudia lucis.

Hoc largire Pater luminis omnis,
Natum per proprium, Flamine sacro,
Qui tecum nitida vivit in æthera
Regnans, ac moderans sæcula cuncta.

O how you sparkle with glorious light,
Royal offspring of the Davidic stock,
O Virgin Mary, dwelling on high
Over all the citizens of heaven.

You, a mother with virginal honour,
being chaste made ready in your holy bosom
the court of your heart for heaven’s Lord;
thence was born Christ, God in the flesh:

He Whom all the world adores with veneration,
to Whom now every knee is rightly bent;
with your help we implore from Him the joys of light,
with all darkness dispelled.

Grant this, O Father of all light,
through Your own Son, in the Holy Spirit,
Who lives with You in the shining heavens,
ruling and governing all the ages.
