1  Het was een maghet uutvercooren,
daer Jesus af woude syn gheboren.
R: Dies ben ic vroo, o, o,
Benedicamus Domino.
2  Al totter stede van Nazareth
daer woont een maghet onbesmet.
3  Groet se mi metten name myn
ende segt dat ic haer kint wil syn.

1  There was a maid who was chosen
when Jesus wished to be born.
Refrain: It makes my heart glad,
Let us bless the Lord.
2  In the town of Nazareth
lives a maid unblemished.
3  At once she calls me by my name,
and says that I am to be her child.
