Latin.png Latin text

Quem vidistis pastores dicite,
annuntiate nobis in terris quis apparuit?
Natum vidimus et choros angelorum
collaudantes Dominum. Alleluia.

Dicite quidnam vidistis?
et annuntiate Christi nativitatem.
Natum vidimus et choros angelorum
collaudantes Dominum, Alleluia.

Whom did you see, shepherds, say, tell us
who has appeared?
We saw the child new-born and choirs of angels
praising the Lord, alleluia.

Pray say, what did you see?
And tell us of Christ's nativity.
We saw the child new-born and choirs of angels
praising the Lord, alleluia.
