Lyrics: Latin Antiphon

Hodie Christus natus est: hodie Salvator apparuit: hodie in terra canunt angeli, laetantur archangeli: Hodie exsultant justi, dicentes: Gloria in excelsis Deo. Alleluia.

Christ is born today: today the saviour appeared: The angels sing on earth today, archangels rejoice. Today the righteous rejoice, saying: "Glory be to God on high. Alleluia".
