Text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Genuit puerpera Regem,
cui nomen aeternum,
et gaudium matris habens
cum virginitate pudoris:
nec primam similem visa est,
nec habere sequentem.

English.png English translation

The Mother brought forth the King,
Whose name is called the Eternal;
the joy of a mother was hers,
remaining a virgin unsullied;
neither before nor henceforth
hath there been or shall there be such another.
