Hodie nobis coelorum rex, de virgine nasci dignatus est,
in quo clare videmus salutare nostrum.
Gaudeamus omnes in Christo redemptori nostro,
et gloriose simul jubilantes cantabimus:
"Gloria in excelsis Deo, et in terra pax hominibus verae fidei et bonae voluntatis,

Today the king of heaven is born unto us, worthy to be born of a virgin,
and in whom we may plainly see our salvation.
Let us all be glad in Christ our saviour,
and all sing together rejoicing:
"Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to all men of true faith and good will.
