Canite tuba in Sion,
quia prope est dies Domini.
Ecce veniet ad salvandum nos.
Erunt prava in directa,
et aspera in vias planas:
Veni, Domine, et noli tardare.
Alleluia.

Blow the trumpet in Zion,
for the day of the Lord is nigh.
Lo, He comes to our salvation.
The crooked shall be made straight,
and the rough ways plain.
Come, Lord, and do not delay.
Alleluia.

2nda pars
Rorate coeli desuper,
et nubes pluant justum:
aperiatur terra et germinet Salvatorem. (Isaiah 45:8)
Ostende nobis, Domine, misericordiam tuam,
et salutare tuum da nobis:
veni Domine, et noli tardare.
Alleluia.

Part 2
Drop down dew, ye heavens, from above
and let the clouds pour down righteousness:
let the earth open and bring forth the Saviour.
Show us thy mercy, O Lord,
and grant us thy salvation: (Ps. 85:8)
come, O Lord, and do not delay.
Alleluia.
