Lyrics: Latin antiphon

Hic est dies præclarus,
in quo salvator mundi apparuit,
quem prophetae prædixerunt;
angeli adoraverunt
cuius stellam magi videntes gavisi sunt
et munera ei obtulerunt.

This is that renowned day,
on which the saviour of the world appeared,
as the prophets had foretold;
the angels worshipped him,
seeing whose star the wise men rejoiced,
and bore him gifts.
