Venite, venite in Bethlehem.
Natum videte Regem Angelorum.
Venite adoremus,
Venite adoremus,
Venite adoremus Dominum.

Gestant puellae viscera
Deum verum, genitum non factum.

Cantet nunc aula caelestium :
Gloria in excelsis Deo.

Vocati pastores approperant,
Et nos ovanti gradu festinemus.

Velatum sub carne videbimus,

Piis foveamus amplexibus,
Sic nos anamtem quis non redamaret?

Aurum, thus, et myrrham dant munera,
Jesu infanti corda praebeamus.
