Angelus Dómini appáruit Zacharíae
qui cum turbátus ésset
áit ad íllum:
Ne tímeas Zacharía,
quóniam exaudíta est deprecátio túa,
et úxor túa Elízabeth páriet tíbi fílium,
et vocábis nómen éjus Joánnem.
Multíque súper nativitáte éjus gaudébunt;
érit énim mágnus córam Dómino,
et vínum sicerámque non bíbet.

Vox clamántis in desérto:
Paráte víam Dómini,
réctas fácite sémitas éjus.
Inter nátos muliérum
non surréxit májor Joánne Baptísta.
Pía érgo ménte orémus ad éum
ut intercédat pro nóbis
ad Dóminum Déum nóstrum.

The angel of the Lord appeared to Zechariah
who, since he was disturbed,
said to him:
Fear not, Zechariah,
for your prayer has been heard,
and your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son,
and you shall call him John,
and many will rejoice at his birth,
for he will be great before the Lord,
and he will drink no wine or strong drink.

The voice of one crying in the desert:
Prepare the way of the Lord,
make straight his pathway.
Among those born of women
a greater has not arisen than John the Baptist.
Therefore with holy thoughts, let us pray to him
that he may intercede for us
with the Lord our God.
