Latin.png Latin text

Ab Oriente venerunt Magi
in Bethlehem adorare Dominum
et apertis thesauris suis,
pretiosa munera obtulerunt:
Aurum sicut Regi magno,
thus sicut Deo vero,
myrrham sepulturae eius.

English.png English translation

Out of the east came the wise men,
unto Bethlehem to worship the Lord;
and opening their treasury
they offered precious gifts:
Gold, as for a great king,
Incense, as for the true God,
Myrrh for his sepulchre.
