Angelus Domini ad pastores ait:
Nolite timere! annuncio vobis

vobis hodie Salvator mundi,

Facta est cum Angelo multitudo caelestis exercitus
laudantium Deum et dicentium:
Gloria in excelsis Deo
et in terra pax hominibus bonae voluntatis.

3. Stabat mater speciosa [sung text checked 1 time]

1. Stabat Mater speciosa
Iuxta foenum gaudiosa
Dum iacebat parvulus

2. Cuius animam gaudentem
Laetabundam et ferventem
Pertransivit iubilus

3. O quam laeta et beata
Fuit illa immaculata
Mater unigeniti!

4. Quae gaudebat et ridebat,
Exultabat cum videbat
Nati partum incliti

5. Quis est, qui non gauderet,
Christi Matrem si videret
In tanto solacio?

6. Quis non posset collaetari,
Piam Matrem contemplari
Ludentem cum Filio?

7. Pro peccatis suae gentis
Vidit Iesum cum iumentis,
Et algori subditum.

8. Vidit suum dulcem natum
Vagientum adoratum
Vili diversorio

9. Nati Christus in praesepe
Coeli cives canunt laete
Cum immenso gaudio

10. Stabat senex cum puella
Non cum verbo nec loquela
Stupescentes cordibus

11. Eia Mater, fons amoris
Me sentire vim ardoris
Fac, ut tecum sentiam

12. Fac, ut ardeat cor meum
In amando Christum Deum
Ut sibi complaceam

13. Sancta Mater, istud agas,
Pone nostro ducas plagas
Cordi fixas valide.

14. Tui nati coelo lapsi,
Iam dignati foeno nasci,
Poenas mecum divide.

15. Fac me tecum congaudere
Iesulino cohaerere
Donec ego vixero

16. In me sistat ardor tui
Puerino fac me frui
Dum sum in exilio

17. Hunc ardorem fac communem,
Ne me facias immunem,
Ab hoc desiderio.

18. Virgo virginum praeclara,
Mihi iam non sis amara
Fac me parvum rapere

19. Fac, ut portem pulchrum fortem
Qui nascendo vicit mortem,
Volens vitam tradere.

20. Fac me tecum satiari,
Nato tuo inebriari,
Stans inter tripudia

21. Inflammatus et accensus
Obstupescit omnis sensus
Tali decommercio.

22. Fac me [nato]1 custodiri
[Verbo]2 Christi praemuniri
[Conservari]3 gratia

23. Quando corpus morietur,
Fac, ut animae donetur
Tui nati vis

Pater noster, Qui [es in cælis]1,
sanctificetur nomen Tuum;

9. Das Wunder [sung text checked 1 time]

Et ecce motus magnus factus est in mari, 
ita ut navicula operiretur fluctibus; 
ipse vero dormiebat. 
Et accesserunt ad eum discipuli ejus 
et suscitaverunt eum dicentes: 
Domine salva nos, perimus. 
Et dicit eis Jesus:
Quid timidi estis modicae fidei? 
Tunc surgens imperavit ventis et mari, 
et facta est tranquillitas magna.

1 Stabat Mater dolorosa
Iuxta crucem lacrimosa
dum pendebat Filius.

contristatam et dolentem,
pertransivit gladius.
 
3. O quam tristis et afflicta
fuit illa benedicta
Mater Unigeniti.
 
4. Quæ mœrebat et dolebat,
Pia Mater cum videbat
Nati pœnas incliti.
 
5. Quis est homo qui non fleret,
Matrem Christi si videret
in tanto supplicio?
 
6. Quis non posset contristari,
Christi Matrem contemplari
dolentem cum Filio?
 
7. Pro peccatis suæ gentis
vidit Iesum in tormentis
et flagellis subditum.

moriendo desolatum,
dum emisit spiritum.

me sentire vim doloris
fac, ut tecum lugeam.

in amando Christum Deum,
ut sibi complaceam.
 
11. Sancta Mater, istud agas,
Crucifixi fige plagas
cordi meo valide.
 
12. Tui nati vulnerati,
tam dignati pro me pati,
pœnas mecum divide.
 
13. Fac me vere tecum flere,
Crucifixo condolere,
donec ego vixero.
 
14. Iuxta crucem tecum stare,
et me tibi sociare
in planctu desidero.
 
15. Virgo virginum præclara,
mihi iam non sis amara:
fac me tecum plangere.
 
16. Fac ut portem Christi mortem,
passionis fac consortem,
et plagas recolere.
 
17. Fac me plagis vulnerari,
fac me cruce inebriari,
et cruore Filii.

per te Virgo, sim defensus
in die judicii.
 
19. Christe, cum sit hinc exire,
da per Matrem me venire
ad palmam victoriae.
 
20. Quando corpus morietur,
fac ut animæ donetur
Paradisi gloria. Amen
