The one praised by the shepherds,
to whom the angels said,
“Now lay aside your fears”,
has been born the king of glory.
To whom the wise men made their way,
bringing gold, frankincense, and myrrh,
Now the glory of the angels
has become resplendent in the world to all.
Let us rejoice with Mary
amid the host of heaven,
and let them announce the birth with devoted voice
and with sweet melody.
To Christ the king, born God,
given to us through Mary,
let there resound as is truly fitting
praise, honour, and glory.
