Latin.png Latin text

Nobis est natus hodie
de pura virgine
rex victorie.
Cui sol lune et terra
omnia sidera
vernant per tempora.
Laudamus nostrum dominum
Maria filium
regem humilium.

Ideo nos terrigenæ
laudemus hodie
regem potentiæ.
Gratias agentes ei
quod nos eruerit
de fauci tartari.
Ut dentur nobis præmia
magnaque gaudia
in cœli curia.

Salus illi et gloria
atque victoria
per cuncta secula.

English.png English translation

To us is born today
from a virgin pure
the King of victory,
In whom the moon,
sun, and earth and heavenly stars
spring forth throughout the ages.
Now let us praise our Lord,
the Son of Mary,
the humble King!









To Him be worship, thanks, and glory,
and also victory
now and forevermore!
