Lyrics: Anon

Hodie Christus natus est. Noe, noe.
Hodie Salvator apparuit. Noe, noe.
Hodie in terra canunt angeli, laetantur Archangeli. Noe, noe.
Hodie exultant iusti dicentes:
Gloria in excelsis Deo. Noe, noe.

Today Christ is born. Noel, noel.
Today our Saviour has appeared. Noel, noel.
Today the angels sing on earth, the archangels rejoice. Noel, noel.
Today the just exult, saying:
Glory be to God on high. Noel, noel.
