Jube Domine benedicere.
Amen.

Primo tempore alleviata est terra Zabulon et terra Neptalim:
et novissimo aggravata est via maris trans Jordanem Galileae gentium.

Populus qui ambulabat in tenebris vidit lucem magnam;
habitantibus in regione umbrae mortis, lux orta est eis.

Parvulus enim natus est nobis, et filius datus est nobis.
Haec dicit Dominus Deus, convertimini ad me, et salvi eritis.
Deo gratias.
