Gaudete, gaudete! Christus est natus

Carmina laetitiae Devote redamus.
Deus homo factus est Natura mirante,

Unde Lux est orta Salus invenitur.
Ergo nostra contio psallat iam in lustro,

Christ is born of the Virgin Mary; Rejoice!
The time of grace has come for which we have prayed

The world is renewed by Christ the King.
The closed gate of Ezekiel has been passed through

Let it bless the Lord: greetings to our King.
