 Pastores loquebuntur ad invicem,
 transeamus, usque Betlehem,
 et videamus,
 hoc verbum quod factu est,
 quod fecit Dominus,
 et ostendit nobis,
(Versio Vulgata: Luke 2: 15b.

 the shepherds said one to another:
Let us go over to Bethlehem
and let us see
this word that is come to pass,
which the Lord hath shewed to us.
