This song is one of the greatest choral works in Renaissance. . Original Latin text: Ecce beatam lucem; Ecce bonum sempiternum, Vos turba electa celebrate Jehovam eiusque natum aequalem Patri deitatis splendorem. Virtus Alma et maiestas passim cenend'ad est. Quantum decoris illustri in sole, quam venusta es luna, quam multo clar'honore sidera fulgent, quam pulcra quaequ'in orbe. O quam perennis esca tam sanctas mentes pascit! praesto gratia et amor, praesta nec novum; praesto est fons perpes vitae. Hic Patriarchae cum Prophetis, hic David, Rex David ille vates, cantans sonans adhuc aeternum Deum. O mel et dulce nectar, O fortunatum sedem! Haec voluptas, haec quies, haec meta hic scopus Nos hinc attrahunt recta in paradisum.
