Noe, noe, noe, psallite noe.
Hierusalem, gaude et laetare, quia hodie natus est Salvator mundi.
Noe, noe, noe, jacet in praesepio, fulget in caelo.
Noe, noe, noe, attollite portas, principes, vestras,
et elevamini, portae aeternales, et introibit Rex gloriae.
Noe, noe, noe, quis est iste Rex gloriae?
Dominus virtutum, ipse est Rex gloriae. Noe, noe, noe.

Noel, noel, noel, sing noel.
Jerusalem, rejoice and be glad, for today is born the Savior of the world.
Noel, noel, noel, he lies in a manger, he shines forth in heaven.
Noel, noel, noel, lift up your gates, O ye princes,
and be lifted up, ye everlasting doors, and the King of Glory shall enter in.
Noel, noel, noel, who is this King of Glory?
The Lord of hosts, he is the King of Glory. Noel, noel, noel.
