Lyrics: Anon

Verbum caro factum est de Virgine Maria.

In hoc anni circulo vita datur saeculo
nato nobis parvulo de Virgine Maria.

Verbum caro factum est de Virgine Maria.

Non humano semine sed divino flamine
Deus datur feminae in Virgine Maria.
Stella solem protulit sol salutem contulit
nihil tamen abstulit a Virgine Maria.

Verbum caro factum est de Virgine Maria.

O beata femina cuius ventris sarcina
mundi lavit crimina de Virgine Maria.
In excelsis canitur verbum caro panditur
In praesepi positur a Virgine Maria.

Verbum caro factum est de Virgine Maria.

O pastores currite gregem vestrum sinite
Deum vestrum colite cum Virgine Maria.
O Jesu dulcissime vita cibus animae
nobis dona requiem cum Virgine Maria.

Verbum caro factum est de Virgine Maria.
