Lux fulgebit hodie super nos: quia natus est nobis Dominus:
et vocabitur Admirabilis, Deus, Princeps pacis,
Pater futuri saeculi: cujus regni non erit finis.
Dominus regnavit, decorem indutus est:
indutus est Dominus fortitudinem, et praecinxit se.

A light shall shine upon us this day: for the Lord is born to us:
and He shall be called Wonderful, God, the Prince of Peace,
the Father of the world to come: of whose reign there shall be no end.
The Lord hath reigned, He is clothed with beauty:
the Lord is clothed with strength and hath girded Himself.
