Veni, veni, Emmanuel ;
Captivum solve Israel,
Qui gemit in exilio,
Privatus Dei Filio.
R: Gaude! Gaude! Emmanuel,
Nascetur pro te Israel!

Verbum caro factum est!

Lully, lulla, thou little tiny child
By, by lully, lullay.
O sisters too
How may we do
For to preserve this day
This poor youngling
For whom we do sing:
“by, by, lully, lullay”?

Herod the King in his raging
Charged he hath this day
His men of might,
In his own sight
All young children to slay.

Puer nobis nascitur.

Personent hodie
voces puerulae,
laudantes iucunde
qui nobis est natus,
summo Deo datus,
et de virgineo ventre procreatus.

On this Day earth shall ring
With the song children sing
To the Son,
Christ the King,
Born on earth to save us;
Him the Father gave us.

Ideo, Gloria
in excelsis Deo.

Gaudeamus igitur, Alleluia.
