- Veni Sancte Spiritus

   - virtual choir

'Veni Sancte Spiritus,' also known as the 'Golden Sequence,' is a sequence prescribed in the Roman Liturgy for the Masses of Pentecost. It's a beautiful, ancient hymn calling on the Holy Spirit. The text is attributed to either Pope Innocent III or Stephen Langton, Archbishop of Canterbury, in the early 13th century. Here are the traditional Latin lyrics along with an English translation:
    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.
    Amen. Alleluia.
