- Edition notes:
Whilst I retain the intellectual ownership of this arrangement, I give full permission for the files to be copied and used for mixed voices. When I produced this setting, it was with smaller groups of singers in mind. An Octet is ideal, with two of each voice plus accompanist. You can contact me via email, email@example.com.

Original text and translations
My love, my treasured one are You,
my sweet and lovely son are you,
You are my love and darling You,
Unworthy I of You.
Your mild and gentle eyes proclaim
the loving heart with which You came,
a tender, helpless tiny babe
with boundless gifts of grace.
Oh King of Kings, most Holy one,
You are our son, eternal one,
You are our gift oh wondrous son,
the ruler of mankind.
