Lyrics

In Bethlehem, that noble place,
As by prophecy said it was,
Of Virgin Mary, full of grace,
Salvator Mundi natus est [The Saviour of the World is born].

Be we merry in this feast
In quo Salvator natus est [in which the Saviour is born].

On Christmas night an angel told
to shepherds watching o'er their fold
In Bethlehem with beasties wolde
Salvator Mundi natus est.

Behold to you we bring great joy
For why? Jesus is born to-day
to us, of Mary that holy May
Salvator mundi natus est.

Then compassed were the shepherds quite
Around them shone a great light
Dread ye naught, said the angels bright
Salvator mundi natus est.

And thus in faith find him ye shall
Lying po,Orly in oxen-stall
The shepherds lauded God for all:
Salvator Mundi natus est.
