Hodie Christus natus est:
Hodie Salvator apparuit:
Hodie in terra canunt Angeli,

Hodie exsultant justi, dicentes:
Gloria in excelsis Deo.
Alleluia.

I dag er Kristus født
I dag er frelseren kommet frem
I dag synger englene på jorden
Ærkeenglene glæder sig
I dag glæder de retfærdige sig, og siger:
Ære være Gud i det højeste
Halleluja.

Heute ist Christus geboren,
heute ist der Heiland erschienen.
