Lyrics: Anon

Hodie Christus natus est.
Hodie Christus de cæos descendit.
Hodie Christus in terra homo factus est.
Gaudete et exultate Domino omnis terra,
et in ætitia cantate populi.
Nam hodie verbum caro factum est
de Virgine Maria.

Christ is born today.
Glorify him.
Christ came down from the heavens today.
Engage with him.
Christ is made man on earth today.
Rejoice and praise the Lord, all ye lands
and sing in joy all ye peoples.
For the word is made flesh
of the Virgin Mary today.
