(with interpolation of Thomas Tallisí earlier setting)

TEXT

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 which from the Light has birth,
Jesus, Redeemer of the earth,
Laudes, Laudes des laudes precesque sumere
O light which from the Light has birth,
Jesus, Redeemer of the earth,
Thy faithful flock vouch safe to spare,
Hear our gift of praise and pray'r,
Thou, who for man's salvation sake
thyself hast deigned pure flesh to take,
O make us members true and sure of that
Thy Holy body pure.
