Prima Pars
Reges terrae congregati sunt
convenerunt in unum dicentes :
eamus in Judaeam
et inquiramus
ubi est qui natus est rex magnus
cujus stellam vidimus
alleluia.

Secunda Pars
Et venientes invenerunt puerum
cum Maria matre ejus
quem videntes admirati sunt
et procidentes adoraverunt eum
offerentes aurum thus et myrham
Filio Dei regi magno
alleluia.
