O Lux Beatissima

O Lux beatissima

Réple córdis íntima

Tuórum fidelium


Accénde lúmen sénsibus,

Infúnde amórem córdibus,

Infírma nostri córporis,

Virtúte fírmans pérpeti

Translation: 

O light most blessed,

Fill the inmost heart
Of all thy faithful


Enkindle your light in our minds

Infuse your love into our hearts

Strengthen the frailties of our flesh

By your perpetual power.
