Lyrics: Latin Antiphon

Quem vidistis, pastores? Dicite, annunciate nobis, in terris quis apparuit.
Natum vidimus et choros angelorum collaudantes Dominum.
Dicite quidnam vidistis et annunciate Christi nativitatem.
Natum vidimus et choros angelorum collaudantes Dominum.

Whom did you see, shepherds? Speak and tell us: who has appeared on earth.
We saw the new-born and choirs of angels praising the Lord.
Tell us what you have seen, and announce Christ's nativity.
We saw the new-born and choirs of angels praising the Lord.
