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!
