Audite principes et auribus
percipite omnes habitationes terrae
et exsultate. Audite senes quae loquor vobis,
audiat terra verba oris mei in laetitia. Audite patres
et super filiis vestris narrate cum iubilo mirabilia magna.
Audite hodie serenissimi principes, veneranda senectus,
praestantissimi patres. Salvator noster natus est,
gaudeamus quoniam una cunctis laetitia communis est ratio,
mellifluent sunt caeli, vinea florent et montes exsultent.
Et exsultemus, et jubilemus, et gaudeamus.
Quoniam puer natus est nobis, et filius datus est nobis,
et Salvator donatus est nobis. Alleluia.
Listen ye princes,
and hearken all ye people of the earth
and rejoice. Listen ye elders to the words which I say unto you.
Let the whole earth hear with gladness the words of my mouth.
Listen fathers and tell your children of this great marvel with joy.
Listen today ye most serene princes, ye aged and venerable,
ye eminent elders. Let us rejoice: our Saviour is born.
A general rejoicing of all the people is ordained.
The heavens are filled with honey, the vines are in flower, the
mountains rejoice. And we shall celebrate and rejoice and be glad.
For unto us a boy is born, unto us a son is given,
and unto us a Saviour is granted. Alleluia.
