Veni Domine

Veni Domine is a Latin song or chant that was given a modern rendition by Czech singer Bara Basikova. I first heard this song on the Inspirational Moments 2 compilation published by EMI. I would like to share you the song’s lyrics and its almost perfect Englosh translation.

VENI DOMINE

Deus meus in te confido
labia mea laudabunt te Jesu
agnus dei in te confido
audi voces te adorant, te precantes
animam meam levavi ad te
Benedictus tu coqnovisti me
te laudamus veni domine

Deus meus inte confido
defende nos ab hostibus Jesu
agnus dei in te confido
presta pacis incrementum, memento verbi
animam meam levavi ad te
Benedictus – miserere nobis
te laudamus veni domine

Deus meus in te confido
agnus dei qui tolis preccata mundi
sine te nihil est in domine
Jesu Christe, Redemptor omnium
te laudamus veni domine

A very close Latin to English translation made by Enbrethiliel (Lines in italics are literal translations):

COME, LORD

My God, I trust in You.
My lips will praise You, Jesus.
Lamb of God, I trust in You.
Listen, voices adore You, praying to you
I have lifted up my soul to You.
Blessed are You; You have understood me.
We praise You. Come, Lord!

My God, I trust in You.
Defend us from the enemies, Jesus.
Lamb of God, I trust in You.
Help the increase of peace. Remember Your word.
I have lifted up my soul to You.
Blessed One, have mercy on us.
We praise you. Come, Lord!

My God, I trust in You.
Lamb of God Who takes up the sins of the world.
Without You, no one is in the Lord.
Jesus Christ, Redeemer of all,
We praise you. Come, Lord!
