Adeste fideles laeti triumphantes; venite, venite in Bethlehem; Natum videte regem angelorum: Venite, adoremus Dominum. En, grege relicto, humiles ad cunas, vocati pasni ad Bethlehem; Et nos ovanti gradu festilorum. Venite, adoremus Dominum. Stella duce, magi Christum adorantes, aurum, thus et myrham dant munera. Jesu infanti corda prebeamus: Venite, adoremus Dominum.

All you faithful, joyful and triumphant, Come, come to Bethlehem; To behold him, born king of the angels: Come, let us worship the Lord. Leaving their flocks, humbly to the cradle, The bidden shepherds approach; And we too hasten to the city. Come, let us worship the Lord. Following the star, wise men worship the Christ, giving gold, incense and myrrh as gifts, Placing them before the infant Jesus. Come, let us worship the Lord.
