Córde et ánimo
Chrísto canámus glóriam
in hac sácra solenitáte precélse
genitrícis Déi Márie.
Cum jocunditáte nativitátem
beáte Maríe celebrémus,
ut ípsa pro nóbis intercédat
ad Dóminum Jhésum Chrístum.

With heart and soul,
let us sing glory to Christ
in this sacred solemnity of the lofty
birthgiver of God, Mary.
With joy, let us celebrate
the birth of blessed Mary,
that she may intercede for us
to the Lord Jesus Christ.
