Sacros celestes coros
dulces cantores diestros
que con respeto y pasmo
a vuestro Rey eterno
mirais desnudo y pobre
temblando al crudo cierzo,
cantad en sus ala banzas
con trinos y gorjeos
porque ha nacido humano.

Gloria in excelsis Deo
et in terra pax hominibus bonae voluntatis.

Sigan cantando hoy los zagales,
puesto que viene Dios tierno infante,
dando humilde prendas bastantes,
de que ya el cielo firma las paces,
por medio suyo, con los mortales.

Alaben todas las gentes
al divino verbo en carne.
Laudamus te le repitan
por sus obras admirables.
