Flos ut rosa floruit

Language: Latin

Flos ut rosa floruit
quando virgo genuit 
Salvatorem omnium,
summi patris filium,
nova genitura.

Qui divina gratia
descendit ad infera 
et salvavit omnia
summa cum potentia,
nova genitura.

Cantemus hymnum gloriae
cantico laetitiae
sollemnizantes hodie
regi regum justitiae
gratias agendo

Qui natus est de Virgine
mistico spiramine
nova genitura
Ergo nostra concio
psallat cum tripudio
benedicat Domino

Eine Blume blühte auf wie eine Rose

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Latin

Eine Blume blühte auf wie eine Rose, 
als die Jungfrau 
gebar Aller Erlöser,
des allerhöchsten Vaters Sohn,
nie zuvor geboren.

Durch Gottes Gnade kam er
herab zur 
und errettete uns alle
kraft seiner Macht,
nie zuvor gewesen.

Lasst uns ihm zum Ruhme singen,
freudenvoll sein Lob 
und ihn heute preisen,
den höchsten König der Gerechtigkeit,
ihm unsern Dank erbringen.

Er ward geboren aus der Jungfrau
durch das Mysterium eines Odems,
nie zuvor geschehen.
Lasst uns in Gemeinschaft
singen und frohlocken,
preisen unsern Herrn.
