Welcome to the forums!

If you mean five 14-2/G cables, splice all the grounds together, bond to the box if it's metal, and leave one wire long to connect to the fixture. Mark the white wire in the cable going to the switch with black or red electrical tape and splice it to the four black wires not going to the switch.

Connect the fixture to ground. Splice the fixture neutral and the remaining four white wires together. Splice the hot lead for the fixture to the black wire coming from the switch.
