Psallite, unigenito
Christo Dei Filio, Christo Dei Filio,
Redemptori Domino, puerulo, iacenti in praesepio.

Ein kleines Kindelein liegt in dem Krippelein;
Alle liebe Engelein dienen dem Kindelein, und singen ihm fein,

Christo Dei Filio, Christo Dei Filio,
Redemptori Domino, puerulo, iacenti in praesepio.

Sing your psalms to Christ,
the only begotten Son of God,
sing your psalms to the Redeemer.

A small Child lies in the manger.
All the blessed angels serve Him and sing to Him.

Sing your psalms to Christ,
the only begotten Son of God,
sing your psalms to the Redeemer.
