In dulci jubilo, Let us our homage shew;
Our heart's joy reclineth, In praesepio,
And like a bright star shineth, Matris in gremio.
Alpha es et O, Alpha es et O!

O Jesu parvule! I yearn for thee alway!
Hear me, I beseech thee, O Puer optime!
My prayer let it reach thee,
O Princeps gloriae!
Trahe me post te, Trahe me post te!

O Patris caritas, O Nati lenitas!
Deeply were we stained, Per nostra crimina;
But thou hast for us gained, Coelorum gaudia.
O that we were there, O that we were there!

Ubi sunt gaudia, If that they be not there?
There are angels singing, Nova cantica,
There the bells are ringing, In Regis curia:
O that we were there, O that we were there!
