Translation of Rorate Caeli

Latin English
Rorate caeli desuper,
et nubes pluant justum.

1. Ne irascaris Domine,
Ne ultra memineris iniquitatis:
Ecce civitas Sancti facta est deserta:
Sion deserta facta est:
Jerusalem desolata est:
Domus sanctificationis Tuae et gloriae Tuae,
Ubi laudaverunt Te patres nostri.

Rorate caeli desuper,
et nubes pluant justum.

2. Vide, Domine, afflictionem populi Tui,
Et mitte quem missurus es:
Emitte Agnum dominatorem terrae,
De petra deserti
Ad montem filiae Sion:
Ut auferat ipse jugum captivitatis nostrae.

Rorate caeli desuper,
et nubes pluant justum.

3. Consolamini, consolamini, popule meus:
Cito veniet salus tua:
Quare moerore consumeris,
Quia innovavit te dolor?
Salvabo te, noli timere,
Ego enim sum Dominus Deus tuus,
Sanctus Israel, redemptor tuus.

Rorate caeli desuper,
et nubes pluant justum
Drop down dew, ye Heavens, from above,
and let the clouds rain down the Just One.

1. Be not angry, O Lord,
And remember no longer our iniquity.
Behold the city of Thy sanctuary is become a desert. Sion is made a desert.
Jerusalem is desolate,
The house of our holiness and of Thy glory,
Where our fathers praised Thee.

Drop down dew, ye Heavens, from above,
and let the clouds rain down the Just One.

2. See, O Lord, the affliction of Thy people,
And send Him whom Thou hast promised to send.
Send forth the Lamb, the ruler of the earth,
From the rock of the desert
To the mount of the daughter of Sion.
That He Himself may take off the yoke of our captivity.

Drop down dew, ye Heavens, from above,
and let the clouds rain down the Just One.

3. Be comforted, be comforted, my people.
Thy salvation shall speedily come.
Why wilt thou waste away in sadness?
Why hath sorrow seized thee?
I will save thee. Fear not.
For I am the Lord thy God,
The Holy One of Israel, thy Redeemer.

Drop down dew, ye Heavens, from above,
and let the clouds rain down the Just One.
