Lyrics: Anon

Hodie nobis coelorum rex de virgine nasci dignatus est
ut hominem perditum ad coelestia regna revocaret.
Gaudet exercitus angelorum quia salus aeterna humano generi apparuit.
Gloria in excelsis Deo et in terra pax hominibus bonae voluntatis.
Gaudet exercitus angelorum quia salus aeterna humano generi apparuit.

Today the king of heaven is born unto us, worthy to be born of a virgin,
so that he might restore fallen man to the kingdom of heaven.
The army of angels rejoices, since eternal salvation has appeared for all mankind.
Glory be to God on high and in earth peace goodwill towards men.
The army of angels rejoices, since eternal salvation has appeared for all mankind.

Philippe de Monte
(1521 - 1603)

Hodie nobis coelorum rex

(S.S.A.T.T.B. (or A.A.T.T.B.B.))
