HYMNUS
DE INCARNATIONE DOMINI NOSTRI JESU CHRISTI.

1. ADESTE, fideles lęti, triumphantes;
Venite, venite in Bethlehem:
Natum videte Regem Angelorum.
    Venite, adoremus Dominum.

2. Deum de Deo, lumen de lumine,
Gestant puellę viscera,
Deum verum, genitum, non factum.
    Venite, adoremus Dominum.

3. En grege relicto humiles ad cunas
Vocati pastores approperant:
Et nos ovanti gradu festinemus.
    Venite, adoremus Dominum.

4. Stella duce Magi Christum adorantes
Aurum, thus, et myrrham dant inunera:
Jesu infanti corda praebeamus.
    Venite, adoremus Dorninum.

5. Ęterni Parentis splendoreni ęternum
Velatum sub came videbimus,
Deum infantem pannis involutum.
    Venite, adoremus Dominum.

6. Pro nobis egenum et fœno cubantem
Pus foveamus amplexibus:
Sic nos amantem quis non redamaret?
    Venite, adoremus Domninum.

7. Cantet nunc Io chorus Angelorum,
Cantet nunc aula cœlestium:
Gloria in excelsis Deo.
    Venite, adoremus Dominum.

8. Ergo qui natus die hodierna,
Jesu, tibi sit gloria,
Patris ęterni Verbum caro factum.
    Venite, adoremus Domitium.

V. Verbum caro factum est, alleluia.
R. Et habitavit in nobis, alleluia.

OREMUS.
Pa nobis, quaesumus, omnipotens Deus: ut qui nova incarnati Verbi tui luce perfundimur; hoc in nostro resplendeat opere, quod per lidem fulget in mente. Per eumdem Christum Dotninum nostrum. R. Amen.
