Lyrics: Anon

Stella quam viderant magi in oriente antecedebat eos
donec venirent ad locum ubi puer erat.
Videntes autem eum gavisi sunt gaudio magno.
Et intrantes domum invenerunt puerum cum Maria mater ejus, et procidentes adoraverunt eum.
Videntes autem eum gavisi sunt gaudio magno.

The star which the Wise Men saw in the East went before them
until it came to where the Child was.
And when they saw it, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.
And entering into the house, they saw the child with Mary his mother, and falling down they worshipped him.
And when they saw him, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.
