The Hymns and Carols of Christmas

Et virgine natus Christe es sine macula

Source: Thomas Wright, Songs and Carols Now First Printed, From a Manuscript of the Fifteenth Century (London: The Percy Society, 1847), Song #5, printed verbatim from a manuscript probably owned by a professional musician, and apparently written in the latter half of the fifteenth century, circa 1471-1485.

Et virgine natus, Christe, es sine macula
Mortis pomo cepit homo quam rumpens jacula,
Nos gaudere et habere fac habitacula,
Ubi manes cunta regens unices per secula.

Spiritus sancte, Deus, for nobis juvamen,
Cui fuisti matri Christi sacrum consolamen,
Da cum judex advenix rex ad nostrum examen,
Nos unitas in qua extas Deus servet. Amen.
