I. Dies est laetitiae

 Dies est laetitiae
 In ortu regali,
 Nam processit hodie
 Ventre virginali
 Puer admirabilis,
 Totus delectabilis
 In humannitate,
 Qui inaestimabilis
 Est et ineffabilis
 In divinitate.

 Ortes Dei filio
 Virgine de pura,
 Ut rosa delilio,
 Stupescit natura,
 Quem parit juvencula
 Natum ante saecula
 Creatorem rerum,
 Quod uber muniditiae
 Lac dat puer ritiae
 Antique de erum.

II. Conditor alme siderum

 1. Conditor alme siderum,
 aeterna lux credentium,
 Christe, redemptor omnium,
 exaudi preces suplicum.

 2. Qui condolens interitu
 mortis perire saeculum,
 salvasti mundum languidum,
 donans reis remedium.

 3. Vergente mundi vespere,
 uti sponsus de thalamo,
 egressus honestissima
 Virginis matris clausula.

 4. Cujus forti potentiae
 genu curvantur omnia;
 caelestia, terresstria
 nutu fatentur subdita.

 5. Te, Sancte fide quaesumusc,
 venture iudex saeculi,
 conserva nos in tempore
 hostis a telo perfide.

 6. Sit Christe, rex piissime,
 tibi Patrique gloria
 cum Spititu Paraclito,
 in sempiterna saecula.

III. Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence

 1. Let all mortal flesh keep silence,
 and with fear and trembling stand;
 Ponder nothing earthly minded,
 for with blessing in his hand,
 Christ our God to earth descendeth,
 Our full homage to demand.

 2. King of Kings yet born of Mary
 As of old on earth He stood,
 Lord of Lords In Human Vesture,
 In the Body and the Blood,
 He will give to all the faithful,
 His own self for Heav´nly food.

 3. At his feet the six wing´d Seraph,
 Cherubim with sleepless eye,
 Veil their facces to His presence
 as with sleepless voice they cry;
 Alleluia Alleluia! Alleluia Lord Most High!
