Original text and translations
Latin and English text
Hodie Christus natus est
Hodie Salvator apparuit.
The angels came from heaven high,
and they were clad with wings,
and lo, they brought a joyful song,
the host of heaven sing.
Hodie in terra canunt angeli,
The angels sang through all the night,
until the rising sun,
but little Jesus fell asleep
before the song was done.
Hodie exsultant justi dicentes:
Gloria in excelsis Deo
