Christus natus est!

Verbum caro factum est de Virgine Maria.
In hoc anni circulo
Vita datur seculo,
Nato nobis Parvulo
de Virgine Maria.

Puer nobis nascitur,
rector angelorum;
In hoc mundo pascitur
Dominus Dominorum.
Qui natus ex Maria
Die hodierna :
Perduc nos cum gratia
Ad gaudia superna.
A et O, et O et A;
O et Deo dicamus gratias.
Eya nova gaudia!

Verbum Patris umanatur,
O! Dum puella salutatur,
O! Salutata fecundatur viri nescia.
Homo Deus nobis natur
O! Datus nobis demonstratur,
O! Dum pax terris nuntiatur
celis gloria.

Make we joye nowe in this fest
In quo Christus natus est.
A patre unigenitus
Trough a maiden is come to us.
Sing we to here and say:
Welcome! Veni, Redemptor gentium!
Agnoscat omne saeculum.
