A babe is born all of a may, To bring salvation unto us. To him we sing both night and day. Veni creator Spiritus. At Bethlehem, that blessed place, The child of bliss now born he was; And him to serve God give us grace, O lux beata Trinitas. There came three kings out of the East, To worship the King that is so free, With gold and myrrh and frank incense, A solis ortus cardine. A fair song that night sung they In worship of that child: Gloria tibi Domine. A babe is born all of a may, To bring salvation unto us. To him we sing both night and day. Veni creator Spiritus, O lux beata Trinitas, A solis ortus cardine, Gloria tibi Domine. Noel!
