Text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Stella quam viderant Magi in Oriente antecedebat eos donec venirent ad locum ubi puer erat
videntes autem eum gavisi sunt gaudio magno
Et intrantes domum invenerunt Puerum cum Maria mater ejus et procidentes
adoraverunt eum, videntes autem eum.

English.png English translation

The star which the Wise Men saw in the East went before them until it came to where the Child was.
And when they saw it, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.

And entering into the house, they saw the child with Mary his mother: and falling down,
they worshipped him when they saw him.
