Lyrics: Anon

Verbum caro factum est de Virgine Maria.

In hoc anni circulo, vita datur saeculo,
Nato nobis parvulo de Virgine Maria.
Verbum caro factum est de Virgine Maria.

Non humano semine, sed divino flaemine,
Deus datur foeminae in Virgine Maria.
Verbum caro factum est de Virgine Maria.

O beata foemina, cuius ventris sarcina
Mundi lavit crimina de Virgine Maria.
Verbum caro factum est de Virgine Maria.

O Jesu dulcissime, vitae cibus animae
Nobis dona requiem in sempiterna saecula.
Verbum caro factum est de Virgine Maria.

The word is made flesh through the Virgin Mary.

At this turning of the year, life for the ages is given;
The tiny one is born to us, of the Virgin Mary.
The word is made flesh through the Virgin Mary.

Not by human seed, but by divine breath,
God is born of woman through the Virgin Mary.
The word is made flesh through the Virgin Mary.

O blest woman, the fruit of whose womb
Washes away the sins of the world, through the Virgin Mary.
The word is made flesh through the Virgin Mary.

O sweetest Jesus, food for our souls' lives,
Grant us eternal peace.
The word is made flesh through the Virgin Mary.

Giovanni Croce
(c.1557 - 1609)
