IN DULCI JUBILO


1 In dulci júbilo
Let us our homage show;
Our heart' joy reclineth
In praesépio,
And like a birhgt star shineth
Matris in grémio;
Alpha es et O,
Alpha es et O.
2 O Jesu párvule,
My heart is sore for Thee;
Hear me, I beseech Thee,
O Puer óptime;
My prayer let it reach Thee,
O Princeps glóriae;
Trahe me post te,
Trahe me post te.
3 O Patris cáritas !
O Nati lénitas !
Deeply we were stainèd
Per nostra crímina;
But Thou for us hast gainèd
Caelórum gáudia:
Oh, that we were there !
Oh, that we were there !
