The O Antiphons: O Oriens

O Oriens,

splendor lucis æternæ,

et sol justitiæ:

veni, et illumina

sedentes in tenebris, et umbra mortis.

Rainbow in the Egg Nebula

O Morning Star,

splendour of eternal light

and

sun of justice,

come and illumine

those seated in darkness

and the shadow of death.
