  Gaudete, Christus est natus
Latin lyrics Literal English translation

Gaudete! gaudete! Christus est natus
ex Maria Virgine: Gaudete!

Tempus adest gratiae, Hoc quod optabamus;
Carmina laeticiae Devote redamus.

Deus homo factus est, Natura mirante;
Mundus renovatus est, A Christo regnante.

Ezechiellis porta Clausa pertransitur;
Unde lux est orta, Salus invenitur.

Ergo nostra concito Psallat iam in lustro;
Benedicat Domino: Salus Regi nostro.

Rejoice, rejoice, Christ is born
of the virgin Mary, rejoice

The time of grace is here, that which we desire
Let us recite with devotion a song of joy

God is made man in erring nature
The world is restored by the reigning Chris

Passing through Ezekiel's closed gate
Whence the light has risen salvation has appeared

Therefore we now sing our hymn in brightness
May it bless the lord, our saviour king
