Surgite Pastores, Alleluia
Ecce enim evangelizo vobis gaudium
Quia natus est Salvator mundi
Et hoc vobis signum
Invenietis infantem pannis involutum
Et positum in praesepio. Alleluia.

English.png English translation

Arise shepherds. Alleluia.
For I bring you glad tidings:
For this day the Saviour of the world is born.
And this shall be a sign unto you:
you shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes
and laid in a manger. Alleluia.
