Lyrics: Luke ch.2, v.10

Angelus ad pastores ait:
Annuntio vobis gaudium magnum:
quia natus est vobis hodie Salvator mundi.
Gloria in excelsis Deo
Et in terra pax hominibus bonae voluntatis.
In hoc natali gaudio,
Benedicamus Domino,
Laudetur sancta Trinitas,
Deo dicamus gratias.

The angel said to the shepherds: I bring you good tidings of great joy:
For unto you is born today the saviour of the world.
Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace, goodwill to all men.
Come then, and on this natal day
Rejoice before the Lord and pray,
And to the Holy One and Three,
Give praise and thanks eternally.
