Lyrics: Anon

Resonet in laudibus,
cum jucundis plausibus
Sion cum fidelibus:
Apparuit quem genuit Maria.

Christus natus hodie
ex Maria Virgine:
Apparuit quem genuit Maria.

Pueri concinnite,
nato regi psallite,
voce pia dicite:
Apparuit quem genuit Maria.

Sion lauda Dominum
Salvatorem hominum,
purgatorem criminum:
Apparuit quem genuit Maria.

Sunt impleta quæ prædixit Gabriel.
Eia, eia, Virgo Deum genuit
quem divina voluit clementia.

Hodie apparuit in Israel:
ex Maria Virgine est natus Rex.

Magnum nomen Domini Emmanuel
quod annuntiatum est per Gabriel.

Let Sion and the faithful
ring with joyful praise:
He has come that is born of Mary.

Christ is born today of the Virgin Mary.
He has come that is born of Mary.

Let us sing of the child,
hymn the king that is born,
and speak in reverent tones.
He has come that is born of Mary.

Praise the Lord, O Sion,
the Saviour of mankind
and purge of our sins.
He has come that is born of Mary.

Gabriel's prediction has come to pass.
Eia. The Virgin has borne that God
which was gifted in divine compassion.

He has appeared in Israel today,
born a king, of the Virgin Mary.

Emmanuel is the Lord's celebrated name
As foretold by Gabriel.
