O dulcis Jesu, o puer amantissime,
qui pro nobis nasci de virgine
et inter bruta animalia in praesepio jacere voluisti,
fac nos mundi delicias contemnere.

O sweet Jesus, O most loving child,
who for us was born of a virgin,
and chose to lie in a manger among brute beasts,
make us despise the pleasures of the world.
