Make we joy now in this fest
In quo Christus natus est. Eya.

A Patre Unigenitus
Is through a maiden come to us:
Sing we of Him and say Welcome,
Veni, Redemptor gencium. Refrain

Agnoscat omne seculum,
A bright star made three kings come,
Him for to seek with their presen’s,
Verbum supernum prodiens. Refrain

A solis ortus cardine
So mighty a Lord is None as He;
And to our kind He hath Him knit,
Adam parens quod polluit. Refrain

Maria ventre concepit,
The Holy Ghost was ay her with,
Of her in Bethlem born He is,
Consors paterni luminis. Refrain

O lux beata Trinitas,
He lay between an ox and ass,
Beside His mother maiden free,
Gloria tibi, Domine. Refrain

–15th-century English
