Adorna thalamum tuum, Sion, et suscipe Regem Christum:
amplectere Messiam gratulare huiusce matri:
ipsa enim portat Regem gloriae novi luminis.
Subsistit Virgo, adducens manibus Filium
ante luciferum genitum:
quem accipiens Simeon in ulnas suas praedicavit populis
Dominum eum esse vitae et mortis et Salvatorem mundi.

Adorn your bridal chamber, Sion, and receive Christ the King:
embrace the Messiah and congratulate his mother:
for she carries the King of glorious new light.
She remains a virgin, bringing in her hands a son,
conceived before the morning star:
whom Simeon, taking him in his arms, proclaimed to the people
to be the Lord of life and death, and saviour of the world.
