Make we joy now in this fest,
on which Christ was born. Sing joy!
The only son of the Father
through a maiden is come to us,
sing we to her and say: “Welcome!
Come, Saviour of the people!”
Let all generations behold,
A bright star three kings have made come
for to seek with their presents,
the celestial Word proceeding.
O light of the holy Trinity,
He lay between an oxe and ass,
thou Mother and maiden free.
Glory to you, O Lord!
