Lyrics: Latin Antiphon

Quem vidistis, pastores? Dicite, annunciate nobis, in terris quis apparuit.
Dicite quidnam vidistis et annunciate Christi nativitatem.
Natum vidimus et choros angelorum collaudantes Dominum.
Gloria Patri et Filio et Spiritui Sancto.

Whom did you see, shepherds? Speak and tell us: who has appeared on earth.
Tell us what you have seen, and announce Christ's nativity.
We saw the new-born and choirs of angels praising the Lord.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost.
