Lyrics: Matthew 2: 1-5

Cum natus esset Jesus in Bethleem Iudae in diebus Herodis regis, ecce magi venerunt Ierosolymam, dicentes:
Ubi est qui natus est rex Iudæorum? Vidimus enim stellam eius in oriente, et venimus adorare eum.
Audiens autem Herodes rex, turbatus est, et omnis Ierosolyma cum illo.
Et congregans omnes principes sacerdotum, et scribas populi, sciscitabatur ab eis, ubi Christus nasceretur.
At illi dixerunt ei: In Bethleem Judae: sic enim scriptum est per prophetas.

When Jesus then was born at Bethlehem in Judea, in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the East to Jerusalem,
Saying, Where is the King of the Jews that is born? for we have seen his star in the East, and are come to worship him.
When king Herod heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.
And gathering together all the chief Priests and Scribes of the people, he asked of them, where Christ should be born.
And they said unto him, at Bethlehem in Judea: for so it is written by the Prophet.
