1  In Bethlehem, that noble place
As by the Prophet said it was
Of the Virgin Mary, filled with grace
 Salvator mundi natus est.
Be we merry in this feast,
In quo Salvator natus est.

2  On Christmas night an Angel told
The shepherds watching by their fold,
In Bethlehem, full nigh the weld,
 "Salvator mundi natus est." Chorus 

3  The shepherds were encompassed right,
About them shone a glorious light,
"Dread ye naught," said the Angel bright,
 "Salvator mundi natus est." Chorus 

4  "No cause have ye to be afraid,
For why? this day is Jesus laid
On Mary's lap, that gentle maid:"
 "Salvator mundi natus est." Chorus 

5  "And thus in faith find Him ye shall
Laid poorly in an ox's stall."
The shepherds then lauded God all,
 "Salvator mundi natus est." Chorus
