Lyrics

O magnum mysterium
et admirabile sacramentum
ut animalia viderent Dominum
natum jacentem in praesepio.

Beata Virgo,
cujus viscera meruerunt portare
Dominum Christum,
Alleluia!

O great mystery,
and wonderful sacrament,
that animals should see the Lord
born lying in a manger!
Blessed is the Virgin
whose womb
bwas worthy to bear
Christ the Lord.

Alleluia!
