O Regem caeli, cui talia famulantur obsequia!

Natus est nobis hodie, salvator
qui est Christus Dominus,
in civitate David,
Iacet in praesepio,
et in caelis regnat.
Alleluia.

A savior is born unto us today,

PRIMA PARS
¡Oh, Rey del Cielo, a quien se debe tal adoración.
Se muestra en un establo el que llena el mundo.
Yace en un pesebre y, sin embargo, reina en los cielos.
Aleluya.

Nos ha nacido hoy un Salvador
que es el Cristo, el Señor, en la ciudad de David.
Yace en un pesebre y, sin embargo, reina en los cielos.
Aleluya.
