Feast of Pentecost Chant

Veni, Sancte Spiritus,
    et emitte caelitus
    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.

Come, Holy Spirit,
    send forth the heavenly
    radiance of your light.

    Come, father of the poor,
    come, giver of gifts,
    come, light of the heart.

    Greatest comforter,
    sweet guest of the soul,
    sweet consolation.

    In labor, rest,
    in heat, temperance,
    in tears, solace.

    O most blessed light,
    fill the inmost heart
    of your faithful.

    Without your grace,
    there is nothing in us,
    nothing that is not harmful.

    Cleanse that which is unclean,
    water that which is dry,
    heal that which is wounded.

    Bend that which is inflexible,
    fire that which is chilled,
    correct what goes astray.

    Give to your faithful,
    those who trust in you,
    the sevenfold gifts.

    Grant the reward of virtue,
    grant the deliverance of salvation,
    grant eternal joy.
