1. Jubilate Deo
Anonymous Latin text probably based on Psalm 100

Jubilate Deo omnis terra: exultate, justi, in Domino,
et gloriamini omnes recti corde.
Quoniam exaudivit Dominus deprecationem meam:
Dominus orationem meam suscepit.
O laeta dies, O fausta dies, haec dies quam fecit Dominum.
Exultemus et laetemur in ea.

2. Miserere Mei
From Psalm 51 (Vulgate Psalm 50 )

Miserere mei, Deus, secundum magnam misericordiam tuam;
et secundum multitudinem miserationum tuarum, dele iniquitatem meam.
Amplius lava me ab iniquitate mea: et a peccato meo munda me.
Quoniam iniquitatem meam ego cognosco,et peccatum meum contra me est semper.

3. Hodie Christus Natus Est
Antiphon to the Magnificat at Christmas Day Vespers

Hodie Christus natus est,
Hodie Salvator apparuit:
Hodie in terra canunt Angeli,
Laetantur Archangeli:
Hodie exsultant justi, dicentes:
Gloria in excelsis Deo, Alleluja.

English.png English translation

Rejoice in the Lord all ye lands: ye righteous, rejoice in the Lord,
and be joyful, all ye that are true of heart.
For the Lord hath heard my petition:
The Lord hath heard my prayer.
O happy day, O joyful day, this day which the Lord hath made.
Let us rejoice and be glad on this day.

Have mercy upon me, O God, after thy great goodness:
according to the multitude of thy mercies do away mine offences.
Wash me throughly from my wickedness: and cleanse me from my sin.
For I acknowledge my faults: and my sin is ever before me.

Today Christ is born;
Today the Saviour has appeared;
Today the Angels sing,
The Archangels rejoice;
Today the righteous rejoice, saying:
Glory to God in the highest. Alleluia!
