Quem vidistis pastores
Quem vidistis pastores dicite:
annuntiate pro nobis in terris quis apparuit.
et choros Angelorum collaudantes Dominum.
Dicite quidnam vidistis,
et annuntiate Christi nativitatem.

Whom did you see, shepherds, speak
Language: English after the Latin
Whom did you see, shepherds, speak,
tell us: on earth, who has appeared?
[The] newborn [child] we saw,
and choirs of Angels praising [the] Lord.
Tell of what you saw,
and announce Christ's nativity.
