Illumináre, Jerúsalem, quia venit lumen tuum,
    et glória Dómini super te orta est.
Et ambulábunt gentes in lúmine tuo,
    et reges in splendóre ortus tui.

Fílii tui de longe vénient
    et fíliae tuae de látere tuo consúrgent.
Omnes de Saba vénient,
    aurum et thus deferéntes,
    et laudem Dómino annunciántes.

English.png English translation

Shine, O Jerusalem, for thy light is come,
    and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.
And the Gentiles shall come to thy light,
    and kings to the brightness of thy rising.

Thy sons shall come from afar,
    and thy daughters shall rise up at thy side.
All they from Saba shall come,
    bearing gold and frankincense,
    and shewing forth praise to the Lord.
