Adeste fideles, laeti triumphantes,
    Venite, Venite in Bethlehem:
Natum videte, Regem Angelorum,
    Venite, adoremus Domino.

Deum de Deo, lumen de lumine,
    Gestant puellae viscera;
Deum verum, genitum non factum,
    Venite, adoremus Domino.

Cantet nunc Io, chorus Angelorum,
    Cantet nunc aula Coelitum:
Gloria in excelsis Deo, venite,
    Venite, adoremus Domino.

Ergo qui natus die hodierna
    Jesu, tibi sit gloria:
Patris aeterni verbum caro factum
    Venite, adoremus Domino.
