Lux venit lux venit
Sursum corda
Lux venit lux venit arise
Shine for your light has come

By sword by flame
In death solemn ages passed
And voices young
Grow old weary
Holding fast
Hope for the dawning

Lux venit lux venit lux venit
Sursum corda
Lux venit lux venit lux venit arise
Shine for your light has come

Lux venit lux venit
Sursum corda
Lux venit lux venit arise
Shine for your light has come

In grace in might
The babe lay in stable stark
Redemptions's light
Pierces through the shadows dark
Alleluia

Lux venit lux venit lux venit
Sursum corda
Lux venit lux venit lux venit arise
Shine for your light has come

Lux venit lux venit
Sursum corda
Lux venit lux venit arise
Shine for your light has come

Alleluia Alleluia Alleluia Alleluia

Lux venit: "The light has come"
Sursum corda: "look upwards hearts"
