Puer natus in Bethlehem, Bethlehem,
unde gaudet Jerusalem, Alleluia, Alleluia.

Hic iacet in praesepio, praesepio,

Cognovit bos et asinus, asinus,
quod puer erat Dominus. Alleluia, Alleluia.

Magi de Saba veniunt, veniunt,
aurum, thus, myrrham offerunt. Alleluia, Alleluia.

In hoc natali gaudio, gaudio,

Deo dicamus gratias. Alleluia, Alleluia.

Ein Kind geborn zu Bethlehem
Des freuet sich Jerusalem, Alleluja.

Hie leit es in dem Krippelein
Ohn Ende ist die Herrschaft sein.

Das Öchslein und das Eselein
Erkannten Gott den Herren Sein.

Die König aus Saba kamen dar Gold
Weihrauch Myrrhen brachtn sie dar.

Zu dieser weihnachtlichen Zeit
Sei Gott gelobt in Ewigkeit.

Wir lobn die heilg Dreifaltigkeit
Von nun an bis in Ewigkeit.
