Personent hodie
Language: Latin 
Personent hodie Voces puerulae,
Laudantes jucunde Qui nobis est natus, Summo Deo datus,
Et de vir, vir, vir, Et de virgineo ventre procreatus.
 
In mundo nascitur, Pannis involvitur, Praesipi ponitur
Stabulo brutorum, Rector supernorum.
Perdidit, -dit, -dit, Perdidit, -dit, dit, spolia princeps infernorum.
 
Magitres venerunt, Parvulum inquirunt, Bethlehem adeunt,
Stellulam sequendo, Ipsum adorando,
Aurum thus, thus, thus, Aurum thus, thus, thus,
Aurum, thus, et myrrham ei offerendo.
Omnes clericuli, Pariter pueri, Canent ut angeli:
Advenisti mundo, Laudes tibi fundo.
Ideo, -o, -o, Ideo, -o, -o,
Ideo gloria in excelsis Deo.
