Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin and English.png English text

Hodie Christus natus est
Hodie Salvator apparuit.

The angels came from heaven high,
and they were clad with wings,
and lo, they brought a joyful song,
the host of heaven sing.

Hodie in terra canunt angeli,
laetantur archangeli.

The angels sang through all the night,
until the rising sun,
but little Jesus fell asleep
before the song was done.

Hodie exsultant justi dicentes:
Gloria in excelsis Deo
