1. Resonet in laudibus
Cum jucundis plausibus
Sion cum fidelibus:
Apparuit quem genuit Maria!

2 Christus natus hodie
Ex Maria Virgine
Sine virili semine:
Apparuit quem genuit Maria!

3 Pueri, concinite,
Nato Regi psallite,
Voce pia dicite:
Apparuit quem genuit Maria!

4. Sion, lauda Dominum,
Salvatorem hominum,
Purgatorem criminum:
Apparuit quem genuit Maria!
