Text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Stella quam viderant/[viderunt] Magi in Oriente antecedebat eos
donec venirent ad locum ubi puer erat.
Videntes autem eum/[eam]/[stellam]
Gavisi sunt gaudio magno.

Et intrantes domum invenerunt Puerum cum Maria mater ejus
et procidentes adoraverunt eum
Gavisi sunt gaudio magno.

(Gregofacsimil at gregobase adds Gloria Patri)

English.png English translation

The star which the Wise Men had seen/[saw] in the East went before them
until they might come to the place where the Child was.
And seeing him/[it]/[the star]
They rejoiced with exceeding great joy.

And entering into the house, they saw the child with Mary his mother:
and falling down, they worshipped him
They rejoiced with exceeding great joy.
