    Traditional Latin Text

    Roráte caéli désuper,

    et núbes plúant jústum.

    Víde Dómine afflictiónem pópuli túi,

    et mítte quem missúrus es:

    emítte Agnum dominatórem térræ,

    de Pétra desérti ad móntem fíliæ Síon:

    ut áuferat ípse júgum captivitátis nóstræ.


    Drop down, ye heavens from above,

    And let the skies pour down righteousness.

    Behold, O Lord, the affliction of thy people,

    And send forth him whom thou wilt send;

    Send forth the Lamb, the ruler of the earth,

    From Petra of the desert to the mount of the daughter of Sion:

    That he may take away the yoke of our captivity.
