Original text and translations

Psallite, unigenito
Christo Dei Filio,
Redemptori Domino, puerulo,
iacenti in praesepio.

Ein kleines Kindelein liegt in dem Krippelein;
Alle liebe Engelein dienen dem Kindelein, und singen ihm fein,
Singt und klingt Jesu Gottes Kind,
Und Marien Söhnelein,
Unserm lieben Jesulein
Im Krippelein
Beim Öchslein und beim Eselein.

English.png English translation

Sing praises to the only begotten Christ,
the Son of God,
the Lord Redeemer,
and a child lying in a manger.

A tiny babe lies in the crib.
All the living small angels serve the child
Jesus, child of God, sings and chirrups;
Mary's tiny son;
our sweet small Jesus;
In the crib
with baby oxen and baby asses.

(trans. Timmi O'Danaos & Donna Ferrentes)
