Lyrics: Anon

Eia O Jesu parvule nata Mariae.
Hunc oculos reflecte et risu laeto
mortalium laetus corda revise,
eaque crepidantia confirma.
Eia. Natali tuo cantando voces
erigimus cum angelis laetantes
et jubilando tua gratulamur
quae digna genetrici
tam nobile concipere talentum,
et coronamus mille, mille rosis.

Eia, tiny Jesus born of Mary.
Turn your eyes to him and with mirthful laughter
revisit this late-born joy of man,
and affirm him by applause.
Let us fete your birth in song, and
together with the angels' joyful voices,
let us rejoice in her,
worthy to be the mother
of so noble a talent,
And let us crown her with thousand upon thousand of roses.
