Gloria in excelsis Deo: et in terra pax hominibus bonae voluntatis.
Ecce Maria genuit nobis Salvatorem: Johannes videns exclamavit dicens:
Ecce Agnus Dei, ecce qui tollis peccata mundi.
Haec est dies quem fecit Dominus: exultemus et laetemur in ea.
Ave Maria gratia plena. Dominus tecum.
Beata Virgo cuius viscera meruerunt portare Dominum Christum.
Gloria in excelsis Deo: et in terra pax hominibus bonae voluntatis.
Germinavit radix Jesse orta est stella ex Jacob, viro peperit Salvatorem:
Te laudamus Deus noster.
Haec est dies quem fecit Dominus: exultemus et laetemur in ea.
Nato Domino, Angelorum chori canebant dicentes:
Gloria in excelsis Deo: et in terra pax hominibus bonae voluntatis.

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill to all men.
Behold, Mary bears for us a Saviour: John seeing him, cried out saying:
Behold the Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world.
This is the day that the Lord has made: we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Hail Mary full of grace. The Lord be with you.
Blessed Virgin, whose womb was worthy to bear The Lord Christ.
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill to all men.
Blossoming from the root of Jesse, a star arose out of Jacob, A Saviour was born to man:
We praise thee, our God.
This is the day that the Lord has made: we will rejoice and be glad in it.
At the Birth of the Lord, the choir of angels sang, saying:
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill to all men.
