Latin.png Latin text

Hodie veritas de terra orta est,
Hodie in terra Bethlehem panis vivus apparuit.
Alleluja.
Occurite, celestes chori et adorate parvulum:
Spargite lilia veneremini
et exornate Salvatoris incunabula.
Alleluja.

English.png English translation

Truth is abroad in the earth today,
The living bread appears in Bethlehem.
Alleluja.
Run to meet the heavenly host and worship the babe:
Strew lilies reverently
and adorn the Saviour's cradle.
Alleluja.

(trans. Timmi O'Danaos & Donna Ferrentes)
