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.
