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

What if an Infant small be cradled in the stall,
Angel quires in heav'nly hall
Before his footstool fall,
Singing anthems all.

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