Latin.png Latin text

Hodie nobis coelorum rex
de virgine nasci dignatus est,
ut hominem perditum
ad coelestia regna revocaret.
Gaudet exercitus angelorum:
Quia salus aeterna humano generi apparuit.
Gloria in excelsis Deo
et in terra pax hominibus bonae voluntatis:
quia salus aeterna humano generi apparuit.

English.png English translation

Today for us the king of heaven is born,
worthy to be born of a virgin,
so he might restore ruined man
to the heavenly kingdom.
The host of angels rejoices:
because eternal salvation has appeared for the human race.
Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace and good will to men:
because eternal salvation has appeared for the human race.
