Text


O magnum misterium


et admirabile sacramentum


ut animalia


viderunt dominum natum


iacentem in presepio


 


O Beata Virgo


cuius viscera meruerunt


portare dominum Iesum Christum


alleluya.


 


[NEV]

 

Translation


Oh great mystery


and wonderful sacrament,


who the creatures seen


to the born Lord,


lying in a manger!


 


O Blessed Virgin,


whose womb deserved to bring


Jesus Christ, the Lord.


Alleluya.


 


[CEV]
