veni, sponsa Christi

Veni sponsa Christi, accipe coronam
quam tibi Dominus praeparavit in aeternum
pro cujus amore sanguinem tuum fudisti
et cum Angelis in paradisum introisti.
Veni, electa mea, et ponam in te thronum meum
quia concupivit Rex speciem tuam.

Come, bride of Christ, receive the crown
which the Lord has prepared for you for all eternity;
for whose love you have shed your blood.
And you will enter into the Paradise among the angels.
Come, O you my chosen one, and I will set my throne within you:
so shall the King have pleasure in your beauty.

Saint Catherine of Alexandria, pray for us!
