Latin.png Latin text

Canite tuba in Syon.
Annunciate populis et dicite: hodie natus est nobis
Salvator mundi, et verbum caro factum est.
Ecce dies sanctificatus illuxit nobis.
Laetamini cum Ierusalem et exultate in ea
quia in ipso innovatur creatura mundi.

Blow the trumpet in Sion.
Proclaim to the peoples and say:
On this day the Saviour of the world is born unto us,
and the Word is made flesh.
Here the holy day dawns on us.
Rejoice with Jerusalem and be glad with her
For there the creation of the world will be improved.
