Text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Puer qui natus est nobis,
plus quam propheta est:
hic est enim de quo Salvator ait:
Inter natos mulierum
non surrexit maior Ioanne Baptista.

English.png English translation

The child that is born unto us
is more than a prophet:
for this is he of whom the Savior saith:
Among those born of women,
there hath not risen greater than John the Baptist.
