Púer nátus est nóbis,
et fílius dátus est nóbis:
cújus impérium súper húmerum éjus:
et vocábitur nómen éjus,
mágni consílii Angelus.

Cantáte Dómino cánticum nóvum:

quía mirabília fécit.

A boy has been born for us,
and a son has been given to us,
whose empire is upon his shoulder;
and his name shall be called,
Angel of the great council.

Sing to the Lord a new song,

for he has done wondrous things.
