Text

Prima pars
 
O regem celi
cui talia famulantur obsequia
stabulo preponitur
qui continet mundum
Iacet in presepio
et in celis regnat.
Alleluya.
 
Secunda pars
 
Natus est nobis
hodie salvator
qui est Christus dominus
in civitate David
Iacet in presepio
et in celis regnat.
Alleluya.
 
 

[NEV]

 

Translation

Prima pars
 
Oh King of Heaven, who served us with
such obedience,
gives us inn, retains the world.
He lies in a manger, and reigns in heaven.
Alleluya.
 
Secunda Pars
 
Today is born for us, today the Savior,
which is Christ the Lord, in the city of
David;
He lies in a manger, and reigns in heaven.
Alleluya.
 
 
[NEV]
