1. Gaudete, quia vobis,
Gaudete, quia nobis
Puer est datus,
Quem Deum nomino.
Benedicite Domino,
Benedicite Domino:
Christus est natus,
Christus est natus.

2. Now, seeing God is born here,
Upon this happy morn here,
Let us adore him;
And, while Archangels cry,
'Glory be to God on high!
'Glory be to God on high!
Kneel we afore Him.
Kneel we afore Him.
