Quem vidistis pastores? Dicite: annunciate nobis in terra
quis apparuit Christum salavatorem de Virgine natum vidimus
et choros angelorum collaudantes Domino:
Mariam et Joseph vidimus in terra stratos supplices
et natum carum pariter adorantes humilites.
Gratia Deo qui dedit nobis victoriam
per Jesum Christum Salvatorem nostrum.
O magnum mysterium et admirabile sacramentum ut animalia
viderent Dominum natum iacentem in praesepio. Alleluia.
Say shepherds, whom did you see? Tell us who has appeared
on earth? Christ the saviour, born of a virgin, him we have seen,
and a chorus of angels praising the Lord,
Mary and Joseph as well, kneeling by the cradle
in humble adoration.
Thanks be to God, who has given us the victory
through Christ our saviour.
Behold a great mystery and a wonderful sacrament, that oxen
should see the newborn Lord lying in a manger. Alleluia.
