Text


DEscendit Angelus Domini ad Zachariam dicens


accipe puerum in senectute tua


Et habebit nomen Ioannes Baptista.


 


NE timeas quoniam exaudita est oratio tua


et Elizabeth uxor tua pariet tibi filium


Et habebit nomen Ioannes Baptista.


 

Translation

The Angel of the Lord came to Zechariah, saying:


Receive a child in your old age:


and he shall be called John the Baptist.


Do not fear, for your prayer has been answered,


and Elizabeth your wife will bear a son for you:


and he shall be called John the Baptist.
