Noë, Noë.
Dies est laetitiae
in ortu regali,
nam processit hodie
De ventre virginali
puer admirabilis,
totus delectabilis
in humanitate,
qui inaestimabilis
est et ineffabilis
in divinitate.
Noë, Noë.

German.png German translation

Noë, Noë.
Es ist ein Tag der Freude
über eine königliche Geburt,
denn heute ging hervor
aus jungfräulichem Schoß
der wunderbare Knabe,
ganz ergötzlich
in [seiner] Menschheit,
der unschätzbar
ist und unaussprechlich
in [seiner] Gottheit.
Noë, Noë.

Noël, Noël.
This is the joyful day,
the royal dawn,
For today comes forth
Out of the womb of a maiden
A wonderful boy,
wholly delightful
in his humanity,
who is priceless
and ineffable
in his divinity.
Noël, Noël.
