O Rex Gentium

O King of the Gentiles (Hag 2: 8), 
and the Desired of all, You are the Cornerstone that binds two into one (Eph 2: 20). * Come, and save man whom You fashioned out of clay (Gen 2: 7).

Veni, Veni, Rex Gentium, Veni, Redemptor omnium,
ut salvas tuos famulos peccati sibi conscios.

(7) O Come, Desire of the nations, bind
in one the hearts of all mankind;
bid every strife and quarrel cease
and fill the world with heaven's peace.

Isaiah 2:4; 11:10
Psalm 47:8; Jeremiah 10:7
Daniel 7:14; Haggai 2:8
Romans 15:12
Ephesians 2:14, 20
