Lyrics: Psalm 24, v.7 (adapted)

Noe, noe, psallite, noe.
Jerusalem gaude et laetare,
quia hodie natus est nobis Salvator mundi,
Noe, noe, noe.
Hic iacet in praesepio, fulget in caelo.
Attollite portas principes vestras,
et elevamini portae aeternales,
et introibit rex gloriae.

Noel, noel, we must sing noel.
Rejoice and be glad, O Jerusalem
for unto us this day is born the Saviour of the world.
Noel, noel, noel.
He lies in the manger and shines in heaven.
Lift up your heads, O ye gates, and be ye lifted up, ye everlasting doors:
and the King of glory shall come in.
Noel, noel, noel.
He lies here in the manger and shines in heaven.
