Our Saviour, the Dayspring from the East,
has visited us from on high,
and we, who were in darkness and shadow,
have found the Truth,
for the Lord is born of the Virgin!
Today Christ is born of the Virgin in Bethlehem!
Today He Who knows no beginning begins!
Today the Word is made flesh!
The powers of heaven greatly rejoice!
The earth makes merry with men!
The Wise Men offer gifts, the shepherds announce the wonder,
and without ceasing we cry aloud:
Glory to God in the highest,
peace on earth, good will to men!
